Château de Beaucastel, Coudoulet de Beaucastel Côtes du Rhône Blanc 2006

Château de Beaucastel, Coudoulet de Beaucastel Côtes du Rhône Blanc 2006
Full golden color.  Ripe fruit-salady nose with some oxidative notes.  Open, soft, rounded and pursy on the palate, a connucopia of exotic orchard and tropical fruit: soursop, cherimoya and guava.  A little flab here.  AWOL on acidity but the tannins give it a little grip.  Fans of a fat, forward, alcoholic style of white will take to this much more than us.  Should keep for another year+.  Now – 2014.
