||Famille Perrin Coudolet de Beaucastel Cotes du Rhone 2016
This has a very plush, luscious and generously fleshy feel. Cherry compote, raspberries, blackberries and plums. Tarry elements, too. Smooth, velvety, pure and even. Succulence, elegance and clarity. Such value here. Drink or hold. By James Suckling, Aug 2018.
Bottled three weeks ago, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone Coudoulet de Beaucastel sports a deep ruby/purple color as well as terrific freshness in its blueberry, violets, raspberry, and spring flower aromas and flavors. Showing the vintages purity and elegance, it still packs ample oomph and richness. Drink it over the coming decade. By Jeb Dunnuck, Aug 2018.
