Today, brothers Daniel & Frédéric Coulon and Daniel’s sons Victor and Antonin are dedicated to producing the most essential expressions of this historic region, long sought-after by discerning collectors and enthusiasts around the globe. Domaine de Beaurenard has been producing certified biodynamic wines on more than 80 acres of this celebrated terroir since 2011. Domaine de Beaurenard is also established in the up and coming Rasteau Appellation with 60 acres and in Côtes du Rhône with 25 acres both also certified biodynamic.

  • Vintage Report

    • We have never seen such an original season, starting with a drought in the winter and early spring and very dry conditions, then we were hit twice by the hail in some Châteauneuf-du-Pape vineyards. The month of June turned out to be very wet and humid and a bit challenging in terms of viticulture. The summer was dry and warm but without extreme temperature except at the end of august. Harvest, then started quite early but a couple rains helped the ripening to slow down and we were able to pick grapes for six weeks at a slow pace and with exceptional conditions for each vineyard. Wines so far are very aromatic, balanced, elegant and with a medium bodied tannin structure. We are very confident about it and proud of the results in a year full of various challenges.
