  • 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

    • The 2021 vintage is characterized by a very mild winter, leading to early bud bursting, with serious consequences. During the night of April 7-8, a terrible episode of spring frost shook France. The loss of harvest was significant. Fortunately, practices of soft pruning, late pruning and the application of Valerian helped to contain the damage. The summer was hot, without excessive temperature and with cool nights. A few rains led to a very promising maturation of all plots. The harvest took place at the estate from September 7 to October 8, over 26 harvest days. Although nearly 300mm of rain and thunderstorms marked the period, the grapes reached great maturity. Our old vines once again demonstrated their relevance. With tall shoots, presenting smaller and more airy bunches, the grapes were less exposed to humidity and its consequences. This allowed optimal maturity from each parcel and resulted in healthy grapes of great quality, throughout the harvest.

  • 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: Selected plots, of mainly old vines of the 13 varieties of the appellation planted together, predominantly Grenache.
    • Alcohol: 14.5%
  • Tasting Notes

    • Made from old vines of different varieties growing together, with moderate yields, Boisrenard is characterized by the silky weave of its tannins and its generous fruit. A wine of immense depth.



  • Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Boisrenard — 2021 – Jeb Dunnuck – 94 Points

    “One of the deeper hued, richer, more structured and serious wines in the vintage, it has an absolutely gorgeous perfume of blackberries, sappy garrigue, spring flowers, graphite, and crushed stone. Has a great mid-palate, clean, vibrant acidity, ripe tannins, and a great finish.”
