  • Vineyard Profile

    • Châteauneuf-du-Pape 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.

  • Vintage Report

    • After a particularly cold January that allowed the sap to descend completely and the vines to rest thoroughly, 2017 experienced many different weather conditions in the course of the growing cycle. This caused a high incidence of poor fruit set, particularly in the highly sensitive Grenache, resulting in low yields.

      However, frequent applications of healing biodynamic preparations maintained the clusters in excellent condition, ensuring a healthy crop.

  • Vinification

    • The grapes are hand-picked and sorted in the vineyard. Co-fermentation, long vatting for soft extractions. Matured for 12 months in conical vats, foudres and barrels.

  • Technical Information

    • Varietal Composition: A blend of the 13 varieties of the appellation, predominantly Grenache
    • Alcohol: 14.5%
  • Tasting Notes

    • Domaine de Beaurenard’s flagship wine is a quintessential blend, reflecting all the diversity of the terroir and the perfect synergy that exists between the soils and the grapes. It offers a supple and refined texture associated with a delicate aromatic palette that is the result of a constant quest for freshness.

Reviews

  • Domaine de Beaurenard Châteauneuf-du-Pape — 2017 – Vinous – 92 Points

    Deep bright-rimmed ruby. Deeply perfumed, smoke-accented aromas of cherry liqueur, boysenberry and garrigue are complicated by potpourri and allspice flourishes. Juicy and appealingly sweet, offering concentrated red and blue fruit and spice cake flavors and a touch of candied flowers. Supple tannins build slowly on a long, focused finish that leaves floral and spice notes behind.

  • Domaine de Beaurenard Châteauneuf-du-Pape — 2017 – Jeb Dunnuck – 95 Points

    The classic cuvée in bottle, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape is 66% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, and the rest a mix of permitted varieties. This cuvée is brought up in a mix of stainless steel, wooded tanks, foudre, and barrels, with just 5% new oak. Deep ruby purple-colored, with beautiful black cherry and blackberry fruits, it has loads of licorice and garrigue aromas, medium to full body, beautiful concentration, and considerable elegance and purity. I always find a Burgundian style in the wines from this estate and this is no exception....

  • Domaine de Beaurenard Chateauneuf-du-Pape – 2017 – Wine Spectator – 92 Points

    Fresh and racy in feel, with a focused beam of red currant and raspberry coulis flavors entwined with red licorice details. The finish picks up extra shiso leaf, garrigue and iron notes. Solid. Best from 2020 through 2035.
