  • 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

    • The 2018 vintage was marked by abundant rain that brought welcome relief to the Provençal vegetation that was able to recover after a particularly dry summer in 2017. Combined with high temperatures during the growing season, this humidity resulted in unprecedented levels of mildew in the vines and consequently very low yields.

      Fortunately the frequent use of essential oils and plant based tisanes, together with our biodynamic practices and a magnificent autumn, limited the damage and enabled us to bring in superb grapes.

  • Vinification

    • The grapes are hand-picked and sorted in the vineyard. Long, gentle pressing, co-fermentation in small oak foudres. Matured for 6 months in these same foudres.

  • Technical Information

    • Varietal Composition: Selected plots, of mainly old vines of the 13 varieties of the appellation planted together. A blend of 6 white varieties, mainly Clairette and Roussanne.
    • Alcohol: 14%
  • Tasting Notes

    • Made from old vines of different varieties growing together, with moderate yields, the Boisrenard white is characterized by its beautiful smoothness and notes of salinity. A highly distinguished wine.

  • Domaine de Beaurenard Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Boisrenard Blanc – 2018 – Jeb Dunnuck – 92+ Points

    Tart peach, pineapple, white flowers, and spice notes all emerge from the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Boisrenard Blanc, which has a more concentrated style compared to the classic white, yet still plays in the fresh, lively end of the spectrum. With subtle background oak, terrific balance, and a great finish, it's going to gain weight with another year in bottle and keep for over a decade.
