  • Introduction

    • Symbol of the Domaine de Beaurenard, this wine is the great blending cuvée, reflecting the diversity and complementarity of our soils and grape varieties.

  • 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 early harvest. On March 25th, frost damage limited the vegetative cycle. The equally mild and damp spring, prompted regular applications of herbal infusions and essential oils that effectively protected the crop. Flowering started in the second week of May which 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 notably splendid and picking lasted from August 25th to the final days of September.

  • Vinification

    • The grapes are hand-picked and sorted in the vineyard. Co-fermentation, long vatting for soft extractions. Matured for 12 months in conical vats, foudres and barrels.

  • Technical Information

    • Varietal Composition: A blend of the 13 varieties of the appellation, predominantly Grenache
    • Alcohol: 14.5%

  • Châteauneuf-du-Pape — 2020 – Wine Spectator – 92 Points

    “An elegant red, with nice freshness and purity to the wild cherry, plum and red licorice flavors. Shows a spine of crushed graphite that firms up the somewhat structured palate, with charred garrigue and sandalwood on the finish.” 

  • Châteauneuf-du-Pape — 2020 – Jeb Dunnuck – 94+ Points

    “The 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape is terrific, offering classic darker berry fruits as well as peppery garrigue and sappy flower notes. As with the Boisrenard release, this has plenty of tannins and structure, but it’s beautifully balanced and has remarkable purity as well as a great finish.”
