Château de Beaucastel Côtes du Rhône Coudoulet Blanc 2020

AOC Côtes du Rhône, Vallée du Rhône, France

"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."

"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."
