Tasting Notes:
020 Coudoulet Blanc is the usual blend, by which I mean it contains a good amount of Viognier (not allowed in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, just about the only local variety that isn't) as well as Marsanne, Bourboulenc and Clairette. It is a classic Coudoulet Blanc: fresh and fruity with perky acidity and good length. I could drink this now quite happily. October 2021.

Critic Reviews:
"The 2020 Côtes Du Rhône Coudoulet De Beaucastel Blanc is a beauty and offers lots of melon and pear fruits as well as classic spice and rocky minerality. Based on 30% each of Viognier, Marsanne, and Bourboulenc, with the balance Clairette, it’s medium-bodied, beautifully textured, and balanced, with the fresh, pure, elegant style of the vintage." 91/100 (Jeb Dunnock

"Lemon peel, citrus oil, white peach, quinine and jicama notes are allied to a steely spine, with flashes of verbena and savory on the intensely focused finish. Distinctive and could probably use a touch of cellaring. Marsanne, Viognier, Clairette and Bourboulenc." 91/100 (Wine Spectator)
