Rhone lovers know well the Perrin family and the stable of remarkable wines they fashion; the often perfect, minuscule cuvee Hommage a Jacques Perrin, a tribute to the family patriarch and the greatest of ambassadors for Chateauneuf du Pape, to the limited, singular old vine Roussanne, and the more available Beaucastel Chateauneuf, both red and white. For value seekers, look no further than the Perrins' Coudoulet Rouge. The Coudoulet vineyard is located just outside the Chateauneuf du Pape zone (often called "Baby Beaucastel"). The synergies of this blend as expressed in the 2017 Coudoulet is just one more Perrin masterpiece.


Abundant, rich and ripe red fruit with lightly spiced pastry and quite brambly complexity. The palate has a super fleshy, bold and upfront-tannin shape. Fresh and easy. Drink now.

The 2017 Côtes Du Rhône Coudoulet De Beaucastel is a textbook example of this cuvée, and while it tends to be a relatively expensive Côtes Du Rhône, it merits the price. Complex garrigue, ground pepper, and earthy dark fruits all flow to a medium to full-bodied wine that has a polished, elegant texture as well as the sunny, Provençal style of the vintage. It’s capable of lasting for 15 years or more.
