Critic Reviews:
"Bright violet. Intense dark berry and cherry compote aromas are complemented by suggestions of licorice and candied flowers. Palate-caressing black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors pick up peppery spice and lavender qualities on the back half. Rich yet lively, showing no excess fat. The juicy, focused finish is given shape by silky, harmonious tannins and leaves behind a gently sweet dark berry note." 91/92/100 (Josh Raynold, Vinous.com)

"The 2013 Coudoulet de Beaucastel Côtes du Rhône offers a surprisingly ripe, rounded style to go with notes of wild strawberries, jammy black raspberry and peppery herbs. It’s drinking beautifully today, but it has good mid-palate density and I suspect will evolve nicely on its balance." Jeb Dunnock (Wine Advocate)
