Chateau Beauchene Grande Reserve 2004 wine review by (PB)

This Cotes Du Rhone is medium purple/garnet witha dried cherries bouquet and a touch of licorice which dissipates.

In the mouth this wine is nicely balanced though closed and a bit too cold. I'll breathe and warm up a bit...

This is a solid wine with edgy flavors and somewhat angular after air gets to it. This is a pretty decent wine especially for the $9 I found it for. The reference price on this wine is $20 and Wine Spectator gives it an 87 rating. I don't see the 87; maybe 83. If I paid $20 for it I would be dissappointed. For $9, it was pretty solid drinking. Raise a glass.
