Domaine de Beaurenard makes highly concentred wines of great finesse elegance and minerality. This is the true signature and pedigree of the local soils which makes Beaurenard wines suited to lengthy ageing. They can also be drunk young to procure an intense lush pleasure.
The nose on the Boisrenard 2012 is comprised of nice red fruits spiceness and minerality. The attack on the palate is round and the wine is fleshy with style. The wine is very charming that will both delight and age."
The 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Boisrenard is a Grenache-dominated field blend (80%) that also includes 15 other varieties. Brought up all in foudre it boasts a dense purple hue to go with a sensational full-bodied multi-layered array of red and black currants toasted spice peppery garrigue and new leather-like aromas and flavors. Slightly tighter and more backward than the classic cuvée this warrants 4-6 years of bottle age and will be incredibly long-lived. Is this even better than the 2001 and 2016? Readers looking for a more Burgundian styled elegant yet still concentrated and classic Châteauneuf du Pape should jump on these latest releases from Domaine de Beaurenard which are made by the Coulon family. While I found the wines to be slightly narrow and moderately concentrated in the past they appear to be back on track making richly textured concentrated yet still incredibly elegant wines today and you can?t go wrong with either of these new vintages. Their 2019 Cuvée Boisrenard might just match the 2016 and 2001 (and don?t miss the 2017) which remain the benchmark vintages for this estate in my mind. In addition to th
Great purity and serious concentration without overt weight. A very powerful, complete, driving style of wine, big in tannin, acid and alcohol with a long finish.

Saturated ruby. Red and dark fruit preserves candied licorice violet and exotic spices on the expansive nose. Stains the palate with sweet blueberry cherry cola fruitcake and floral pastille flavors that become livelier as the wine stretches out. Blends depth and energy with a steady hand and closes impressively long and youthfully chewy with building tannins and a strong echo of cherry liqueur. -- Josh Raynoldsd
Rich and ripe offering an alluring smoky edge throughout. Layers of warmed plum preserve and cherry compote roll through picking up tobacco and warm earth notes along the way. Drink now through 2034.
The 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape Boisrenard is 80% Grenache with the balance a mix of the other permitted varieties. Fermentation took place in wood (including a small proportion of new barrels) with maturation in foudres. Scents of mint and garrigue accent black cherries and plum on the nose and I thought I detected a hint of charred oak as well (tasted blind). Full-bodied rich and velvety this is a thickly textured concentrated beauty with a long mocha-tinged finish. While it could use a year or two to soften it should drink well for more than a decade.
