“The Perrins pull this wine from the galet-covered vineyards that lay just the other side of the A7 from their vines at Beaucastel. Perhaps that’s why it’s hard to tell this apart from a Châteauneuf. The texture is sleek and juicy, the tannins long and smooth under the earthy cherry flavors while smoky notes of oak lend the wine a sense of opulence. It’s firm and dense with flavor, ready now but also structured to age well for ten years in the cellar.” 93 Pts – Wine & Spirits
“A blend of 40% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, and the rest Syrah and Cinsault, the 2015 Coudoulet De Beaucastel Rouge is a ripe, rounded, supple, sexy wine that offers tons of blackberry fruit, peppery herbs, violet, and tapenade aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, silky, polished and elegant, with sweet tannin and awesome purity, it’s one of the strongest vintages I can remember from this estate.” 92 Pts – Jeb Dunnuck
“Perennially one of the best Côtes du Rhône on the market, the Perrins have hit the mark again with their 2015 Cotes du Rhone Coudoulet de Beaucastel. So complex, lush and rich, it can compete with many producers’ Châteauneufs, this vintage reveals dark fruit, hints of cola, cinnamon and allspice and a long, slightly warm finish.” 92 Pts – The Wine Advocate
“Alluring, with warm raspberry and boysenberry confiture notes gliding along, carried by a well-embedded graphite edge and backed by warm fruitcake and dark tea accents on the finish. Drink now through 2025.” 91 Pts – Wine Spectator
“Refined in style and substance, this has berry warmth, a touch of raisin and a perk of florals. It is quite firm but has a lovely depth and a long finish. Drinking Window 2017 – 2022.” 92 Pts – Decanter
