Description

The 30 hectares of Coudoulet are located just east of the vineyard of Beaucastel on the other side of the A7 motorway. For reasons that have now become obvious, Coudoulet is often considered the baby Beaucastel. The Coudoulet soil has many similarities to that of Beaucastel. It is made out of Molasse seabed covered by diluvial alpine deposits. These pebbles called “Galets Roulés” play a big role: They take in the heat during the day and let it if off slowly at night which gives a good start to the vines in the Spring.
2012 is a vintage of contrasts with a very mild start of the year and a freezing month of February. A fresh and humid spring, followed by a windy and dry month of July and a very hot month of August. The harvesting conditions were ideal. All these conditions make a great vintage.
