"The 2001 Cotes du Rhone Coudoulet is one of the great successes from this vineyard, which sits just across the road from the appellation of Chateauneuf du Pape. It exhibits a deep ruby/purple color along with a closed, but promising nose of melted licorice, camphor, saddle leather, black cherries, and blackberries. It reveals more tannin and substance than most vintages, and it will need 1-3 years of cellaring. This is a long, structured, classic Coudoulet meant for long-term aging. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2016."
