James Suckling 形容2017年Rhone地區為“Superb, Rich and Ripe”. Decanter的報告亦指出，2017年Rhone地區為Excellent，但產量低，酒價可能會水漲船高: ”Quality is generally being reported as excellent, but there's simply not enough grapes in several appellations and this could mean price rises for some wines.”
Chateau de Beaucastel的出品是高質素之選，大家都知道，要品嚐佢最巔峰的狀態，起碼要番最少十年八載才開始，大家想早啲感受優秀年份的品質，唯一的選擇是飲他的副牌 Coudoulet de Beaucastel ，種植Coudoulet de Beaucastel 的葡萄園位於CNDP邊界的東面，佔地30公頃，由於地理位置屬 Cote de Rhone ，不能以Chateauneuf du Pape來標示，而土壤其實非常近似Chateau de Beaucastel，大木桶陳熟6個月，所以Beaucastel 副牌一向以 CP值非常高見稱。

The final blend of the 2017 Cotes du Rhone Coudoulet de Beaucastel was showing plenty of garrigue and dried-spice notes layered over cherry fruit. Full-bodied, silky textured and long on the finish, it should drink well for a decade or more.

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.

Juicy and direct, with a core of blackberry and plum fruit, laced with a singed alder thread and backed by a dusting of garrigue on the finish, which reveals a nice tug of dark earth. Should open up with some cellaring. Best from 2020 through 2028.

While full bodied and plump, this perfumed red offers bright, sunny layers of crisp red cherry and plum marked by lovely twists of tart cassis and raspberry. A bright, sunny wine, it finishes on fine, smooth tannins and hints of crushed earth and sage.

The 2017 Cotes Du Rhône Coudoulet De Beaucastel is a textbook example of this cuvée, and while it tends to be a relatively expensive Cotes Du Rhone, 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.
