  • 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

    • 2019 vintage is in line with the top vintages of the decade. After a nice winter, spring came slowly, where our famous “Mistral” wind helped keep very healthy environments in the vineyard during that important growing season. The last week of June, Rhône Valley vineyards went through a heat wave with temperatures above 45°C (113 °F). Fortunately, our biodynamic sprays of horn dungs, silicas, chamomiles, nettles and essential oils, combined with the good water reserve of the soils from 2018, helped the vines to continue their growth in great conditions. Thanks to August and September gentle rains we were able to pick beautiful grapes, healthy and balanced.

  • 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 Blanc is characterized by its beautiful smoothness and notes of salinity. A highly distinguished wine.
