  • THE BRIEF
  • Domaine de Beaurenard covers 32 ha of vineyard in ChÂteauneuf-du-Pape grown with care and love by the Coulon family, vignerons for 7 generations. The whole vineyard is grown organically and biodynamically.

    Beaurenard makes highly concentred wines of great finesse, elegance and minerality. This is the true signature and pedigree of the local soils, which makes the Beaurenard wines suited to lengthy ageing.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • 66% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, 6% Cinsault, and other AOC permitted varieties. The grapes are destemmed, slightly crushed and placed in a fermentation vat. These steps, combined with long vatting (18 to 31 days), gently extract the maximum amount of phenolic constituents, tannins, anthocyans and resveratrol which give the wine its structure and colour. During the 15 months the wine spends in barrels and truncated vats, we continue to refine its structure to achieve balance and harmony.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    A foundation for Rhône lovers, it shows unbridled energy, loads of red and black fruit and a spice-filled finish that ripples nicely.

    JOE CZERWINSKI - WINE ADVOCATE


    Beaurenard has excelled this vintage. The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape is no slouch, with ample richness, bold cherry and apricot fruit and attractive hints of dried spices and garrigue. Complex, full-bodied and supple, it finishes long and silky. It's two-thirds Grenache Noir, with the rest composed of the 17 other permitted grape varieties.'

    Toasted spices and a wealth of intense plum-paste, as well as tarry notes. The tannins are assertive and gently chewy, right at the limit of ripeness and extract. Drink or hold.'

    RICHARD HEMMING MW - JANCISROBINSON.COM


    Stewed blackberry fruit, lovely bitter chocolate character with a firm fleshy palate. The flavour range doesn't develop much beyond the initial fruit, nor is there the concentration for long ageing.' 16 / 20 Points
