Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Boisrenard Blanc
A smaller production cuvée, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Boisrenard Blanc offers more richness and depth, with terrific notes of tart pineapple, mulled stone fruits, spice, and a touch of caramelized peach. With medium to full-bodied richness, a touch of background oak, solid mid-palate depth, and a great finish, it’s beautifully done and capable of evolving for over 15 years or more. My money is on it being one of the longest-lived whites in the vintage.
Offers a broad, creamy feel, with macadamia nut, piecrust, glazed pear and creamed yellow apple notes, backed by flashes of ginger and brioche on the finish. A lush, seductive wine. Drink now through 2021. 250 cases made, 20 cases imported.
The Wine Advocate
Beaurenard's top white—and one of the best in the appellation—is the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Cuvee Boisrenard, a wood-aged blend of 42% Clairette, 32% Roussanne, 11% Bourboulenc, 10% Grenache Blanc and bits of Grenache Gris, Picardan, Picpoul Blanc and Picpoul Gris. Subtle toast elements (it's fermented and aged in a mix of foudres and used barrels) frame ripe citrus and pineapple in a wine that's round, ripe and full-bodied, plush yet long and crisp on the finish.
