Paul Coulon is still going strong. Both photos are from 2017. Left in the vineyards of Domaine de Beaurenard. Right at an event in 2017 when the brotherhood of
Chateauneuf du Pape Echanconnerie des Papes honoured people who have made effords to serve the appellation in different ways.Poul Coulon was for a long
periode Le Grand Auditeur du Conseil (photo from 2005) in the botherhood. In 2017 he was participating as an ordinary member. ( His partner at the table is
t Nicole Sierra-Rolet, who was one of the founders of the Grenache Assosiation. Probably therefore she was hounored as Camera Parenti at the event. Daniel Coulon has for 
some years continued his father's work for the brotherhood. Paul Coulon's interests led him to establish the Musée du Vigneron at the family's property in Rasteau.
