Jeb Dunnuck Top 100 features Domaine De Beaurenard Chateauneuf Du Pape 2017 at #76!
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. It’s a more reserved, tight 2017 that’s going to benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and keep for 15-20 years. It’s a beautiful, classic cuvée that has power and elegance.https://jebdunnuck.com/2019/12/top-100-wines-of-2019/
