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. This highly concentrated wine, made from vines planted on the best slopes and terraces of the famous Rasteau soils, has an appealingly strong personality. Besides aromas of very ripe fruit, it is generally laced with notes of spice and garrigue scrubland scents specific to this terroir.
80 % Grenache and 20% Syrah. The grapes are destemmed and ferment during 18 to 28 days, with wild yeast, in order to fully extract the concentration achieved in the vineyard and to maximise refinement of the extracted phenolic constituents. Rasteau soils can produce wines with strong tannins. Then the wine are clarified and aged during 12 month in vats and oak foudres before the bottling accomplished with care at the estate.
Dense and deep colour. Nice freshness in the nose with garrigue and wild blackberries notes. Fruity and spicy mouth with wild raspberry notes, rosemary and thyme. Its structure, its balance and its minerality presume a bright future.
