DOMAINE DE BEAURENARD BOISRENARD CHATEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE RED 2016

DOMAINE DE BEAURENARD covers 32 ha of vineyard in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, grown with care by the Coulon family, vinegrowers in Chateauneuf du Pape for 7 generations. Parcels of old vines 60-100 years in age, planted in soils of great character and complexity, provide the grapes for this wine. They are picked when fully mature and meticulously sorted by hand to further enhance concentration. Yields are very low: 15-20 hectoliters/hectare.

VARIETALS: We find the symphony of 13 varieties of Chateauneuf du Pape, with a dominant aroma of grenache, and other red grapes varieties (syrah, mourvedre, cinsault, counoise, muscardin, Vaccarese, terret noir) and white (grenache, roussane, clairette, bourboulenc, picpoul, picardan).

The Boisrenard undergoes lengthy vatting and is aged in an entirely traditional way: no filtration or fining, then 18 months' ageing in oak barrels, bottling, and a spell of rest in our underground cellars.

TASTING NOTES:
Eye: Deep and bright purple color with ruby highlights.
Nose: Deep and sophisticated nose. Very flavoured, the flower notes of rose and violette bring elegance.
Taste: Complex with wild red fruits. Smooth and coated tannins. Deep wine with a long finish.

ACCLAIM:
"The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Boisrenard includes all 18 of the appellation's permitted varieties, although it's mostly (66%) Grenache Noir. Strawberries and raspberries shine on the nose, followed by a full-bodied palate that's creamy-silky and lush but also bright, lively and long. It's a super effort, at what should be a realistic price."
