Featured Review
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. Jeb Dunnuck

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. Biodynamically-grown Grenache (66%), Syrah (12%) and Mourvèdre (12%), the rest being made up of Clairette Rose, Cinsault, Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris, Terret Noir, Picardan, Picpoul Blanc, Muscardin, Bourboulenc, Picpoul Noir, Vaccarèse, Roussanne, Picpoul Gris, Counoise and Clairette Blanche! Grapes are grown across a variety of soil types in the lieux-dits Beau Renard, Cabrières and Coteau de l’Ange, vinified mostly in tronconic wooden vats, then aged in oak barrels of various sizes and ages, including 5% new oak.Drinking Window 2023 - 2035

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.

Vinous Media | 95 VM
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. 188 cases made, 38 cases imported.

Wine Spectator | 94 WS
Deep nose of damson plums and black cherries with subtle spice and tobacco-leaf aromas. Rich and concentrated with a ton of healthy tannins that beautifully support the full body, the mineral acidity lighting up the long finish. From 70 to 100-year-old vines of all the 13 varieties allowed for this appellation. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Drink or hold.

James Suckling | 94 JS
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.

Wine Details for 2019 Domaine de Beaurenard Chateauneuf du Pape Boisrenard

Type of Wine Rhone Red
Varietal Proprietary Blend : Proprietary Blend is a general term used to indicate that a wine is comprised of multiple grape varietals which are either “proprietary” to the winery or is blended and does not meet the required maximum or minimum percentage of a particular varietal. This also is the case for the grape’s place of origin, especially for region, appellation or vineyard designated wines. There are endless examples of blended wines which are labeled as “Proprietary Blend” and in conjunction with each region’s stipulated wine laws and regulations makes for a vast blanket for wines to fall into. Perhaps the simplest example is California; if a wine is to be labeled as Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, it is required to have at least 75% of the varietal (Cabernet Sauvignon) and 85% of the fruit must be cultivated from the Napa Valley wine district. If the wine does not meet the requirements, it is then labeled as Proprietary Blend.

Country France : Wine is the lifeblood that courses through the country of France, pulsing with vigorous pride and determination. Viticulture is not just a hobby or an occupation in France; it is a passion, a cherished tradition that has been passed down through generations of wine stained hands. Winemaking is a beloved art that has been ingrained in the culture, an aptitude instilled in sons by fathers and the hallmark for which France’s reputation was built, allowing it to be renowned as, arguably, the most important wine producing country in the world.

For centuries, France has been producing wines of superior quality and in much greater quantity than any other country in the world. It boasts some of the most impressive wine regions, coveted vineyards and prestigious wines on earth. The regions of Bordeaux, Burgundy, Rhone, Sauternes and Champagne have become the benchmark, for which others aspire to become. Legendary producers such as Chateaux Margaux, Domaine De La Romanee Conti, Chapoutier, d’Yquem and Dom Perignon are idolized world-wide.

France has stamped its name on nearly every style of wine, from the nectar-like sweet Sauternes to hedonistic Chateauneuf Du Papes classic Bordeaux and Burgundy, to its sparkling dominance in Champagne. Many of the most infamous grape varietals in the world, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay originated in France and are not only beloved, but utilized in the creation of some of the greatest wines on earth. French wine production commands the attention of the wine market year after year. With over 860,000 hectares under vine, and numbers close to 50 million hectoliters of wine produced annually, France dominates the market and sets the standard for not only product quality, but also quantity.

France’s many contributions to the world of wine have been absolutely indispensable. The country is the originator of the term “Premier Cru,” coined the term Terroir (a French term so complex there is no literal translation) and has laid the blueprint for a structured appellation system, which others have implemented in their own countries. French vineyard techniques and winemaking practices are mimicked world-wide. California vintners have been replicating Rhone style wines for decades, South America has adopted the French varietal of Malbec and countries around the world are imitating Burgundian styled Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

With vast diversity in terroir, France is home to some of the most hospitable winegrowing locations on earth. The combination of topography, geology, climate, rainfall and even the amount of sunlight combined with the long historical tradition of winegrowing and making, has allowed the vintners of France to not only hone their skills, but learn from nature to create a product that like the world in which it resides… is very much alive.

Region Rhone : While the Northern Rhone produces only about 5% of all wine coming out of the Rhone Valley, the quality of these bottles is not to be underestimated. The terroir in this region is heavenly for growing Syrah, Viognier, Marsanne or Rousanne - the only permitted grapes in the AOC. Picture this - the Rhone flows through the valley like an azure thread piercing the landscape, a reflection of the dreamy skies hovering above the vineyards, ready to produce rainfall at a moment's notice. The rocky soil of the steep, almost surreal hillsides provides a bountiful feast for the grapevine roots. The flavors and texture of Northern Rhone wines tell you everything you need to know as soon as your lips touch the elixir, like a whisper in the vigorous valley winds

As per the Southern Rhone wine, it is like taking a plunge into a whirlpool of juicy flavor. Every sip explodes forward like a crashing tsunami, bathing your tastebuds in delicious aromas of prune, chocolate, grass, and black fruit. The wines are so compelling that it can be hard to drink them casually at a social event without getting lost in their intricate textures and emotional depths. Let's set sail together, and drink deep from these luxurious bottles with our friends and loved ones.

Appellation Chateauneuf Du Pape
Climat/Vineyard Boisrenard


Producer Domaine de Beaurenard : Chateauneuf-Du-Pape is one of the most recognized names in the world of wine; from its unique terroir to the myriad of cultivated varietals to its illustrious history. Its name derives from the 14th Century when the Popes fled Rome and held Papal Court in Avignon; Chateauneuf-Du-Pape meaning “new castle of the Pope.” The Southern Rhone appellation produces some of the most intriguing, sought after wines in France. For centuries, generation after generation has perpetuated the tradition of winemaking in the region with great pride and respect. Domaine de Beaurenard’s long familial devotion to the land and to winemaking is a testament to this, as the eight generation is now committed to continuing the legacy.

The Coulon family has farmed the area named “Bois Renard” since 1695 and has been producing, bottling and marketing their own wine for nearly a century, having been officially established in 1929. Winemaking at Domaine de Beaurenard is what can be considered a family affair. Today, Beaurenard is managed by Frederic and Daniel Coulon along with Daniel’s sons Victor and Antonin. The domaine practices traditional vineyard management and viticultural techniques including the use of horses to plow, 100% hand-picking and has made organic and biodynamic approaches in the vineyard since 2010.

Beaurenard grows all 13 Rhone permitted grape varieties for use in their red and white wines, though the primary grapes used in their blends are; Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault and small amounts of Counoise, Muscardin, Terre and Vaccarese. For their Chateauneuf-Du-Pape Blanc (white) they primarily use Clairette, Roussanne, Bourboulenc, Grenache Blanc, Picardin and Picpoul in the blend. The average age of the vines are 45 years old, with some of the Grenache being planted over 100 years ago. The vines are fairly dispersed throughout the appellation with plantings in some of the finest Lieux-dits, including Beau Renard, le Bois de la Ville, Cansaud, la Cerise, Colombis, la Crau, La Gardine, and La Nerthe.

The terroir is truly remarkable and is characterized by the diversity of its soils, with a mosaic of plots where different varieties grow together on limestone rock, round pebbles on a clay substrate with varying amounts of iron, and fine sedimentary sand. The large round pebbles (known as Galets Roules) play an important role as they collect the sun’s heat during the day and release its warmth into the soil overnight. This asset provided by the pebbles aides in the growth and development of the vines. The location is also blessed by the Mistral, which blows through the region helping to temper extreme weather conditions.

The domaine’s impressive portfolio is sourced from 80 hectares and includes their flagship Chateauneuf-Du-Pape; a quintessential blend, reflecting all the diversity of the terroir and a perfect synergy that exists between the soils and the grape. It offers supple and refined texture associated with a delicate aromatic palette that is the result of a constant quest for freshness. The Chateauneuf-Du-Pape Blanc symbolizes their love for white Chateauneuf-Du-Pape, consisting of floral notes, a fresh texture and a crisp, juicy fruit with a saline finish. Their Cuvee Bois Renard (red and white) is a tribute to the original plot in which the domaine was founded, offering a silky weave of tannins and generous fruit; a wine of immense depth. Finally, their Chateauneuf-Du-Pape Gran Partita is an expression of a family and a terroir grown with love and care, embodying the Coulon family history. The Coulon family also owns and cultivates 25 hectares in Cotes-du-Rhone Villages and the Rasteau AOC (Appellation of Controlled Origin).
