Special wine for Tuesday Tasting at Braddock’s 22Feb11

This week at Braddock’s (http://www.braddocksrestaurant.com/events/) we are fortunate to have made another deep dive into their wine cellar to fine the 2005 Coudoulet de Beaucastel Côtes du Rhône.   This will be available by the glass (very unusual!) so that we may all taste the results of this historically significant vintage.   Robert Parker rated the Southern Rhone 2005 Vintage 95pts and ageworthy – so this Cotes du Rhone wine should be right and ready to drink with good balance.   The wine is made from grapes grown very close to the uber-famous Châteauneuf du Pape region, so it stands to reason that the soil and weather and grapes of this area must be very similar to the ‘big brother’ Châteauneuf du Pape wines – please join us if you can!
