Famille Coulon Dan and Fred Côtes du Rhône Vignoble en Biodynamie 2020

Côtes du Rhône, Rhone Valley, FranceThis organic and biodynamic Côtes du Rhône is named for proprietors Daniel and Frederic Coulon, who belong to the seventh-generation leading Domaine de Beaurenard. Don't let the fun name and packaging mislead you. This is serious Côtes du Rhône, well-deserving of the price. There's a lovely purity to the fruit, with macerated raspberries and brambles joined by peppery spices, thyme, and sun-baked clay. It's juicy yet concentrated, carrying the 15% abv well, and structured by ripe, fine tannins, which shows this is more than a step above your average CdR.Tasted: 10 March 2023Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MWPrices:
