  • 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

    • Following a mild, wet winter that replenished groundwater reserves, the season was notable for its precocity. Frost damage from the episode on March 25 was very fortunately limited, and in the course of the equally mild and damp spring that ensued, regular applications of tisanes and essential oils effectively protected the crop. Flowering that started in the second week of May confirmed the early nature of the vintage. The plentiful water resources accumulated over winter and the occasional summer showers ensured a progressive and optimum ripening of the grapes. The harvest was particularly splendid and picking lasted from August 25 to the final days of September.

  • 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.

    Lemon curd and white peach with a honeyed note. Chunky palate with a honeycomb crunch – lots of freshness.
