Lovely vintage of this Provençal classic from the Coudoulet vineyard not far from Châteauneuf’s famous Beaucastel estate, where it was made. “Loaded with dark berry fruit, bouquet garni, leather, and garrigue aromas and flavours” (erobertparker.com).
"Fantastic! What a great wine for the price. You would think you are having the £50 bottle"
Online Review for 2011
The southern Rhône has always been “fertile hunting ground for great wine values” (Robert Parker) and here is a real stand-out example from the makers of Châteauneuf’s iconic Beaucastel. This wine is lavished with the same care and expertise that the Perrin family invest in their legendary Châteauneuf du Pape. The grapes are a classic southern Rhône blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre, from three prized vineyards on the estate. Fruit is sorted by hand and state of the art laser scanners, ensuring that only the ripest juiciest grapes are selected for the cuvée. Peppery bramble fruit aromas lead to vibrant black cherry and spiced plum flavours. A Côtes du Rhône of rare depth and class that excels with casseroles or slow roasted belly pork.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
