“99 pt Chateauneuf • "One you don't want to miss."”

"Put into a blind tasting of Grand Cru Red Burgundies and shock your friends."

By David Gettenberg

The terroir of Domaine de Beaurenard is distinct - and so are the wines.  Finesse, elegance, and class.  These are not descriptions you often hear when discussing Chateauneufs.  

"This deeply hued beauty offers a stunning bouquet of blackberries, scorched earth, licorice, ground pepper, and sappy garrigue. I always find a Burgundian-like texture on this wine, and the 2020 is no exception - this is one to put into a blind tasting of Grand Cru Red Burgundies and shock your friends. Medium to full-bodied, ultra-pure, with grippy, sappy tannins, flawless balance, and a great finish, it's pure class all the way. It's going to need at least 4-6 years of bottle age, but this is a wine you don't want to miss, and one of the finest wines I've tasted from this estate."  Jeb Dunnuck

The limestone bedrock and rounded pebbles on clay and sand substrate force the vines to reach deep into the soil.  As the roots struggle, they pull exotic flavors and nuance into the fruit.  Add biodynamic farming, and you have one of the purest Chateauneuf-du-Pape expressions we have ever tasted.

For eight generations, the Coulon family has owned and operated Domaine de Beaurenard.  Today, the two brothers are still committed to creating the most authentic representation of this historical region, which has long been coveted by discerning collectors and enthusiasts worldwide.

Extremely limited.  While supplies last.

“This is one to put into a blind tasting of Grand Cru Red Burgundies and shock your friends.”

Jeb Dunnuck • 99 / 100

"The flagship from this great estate is the 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape Boisrenard, which is based on 80% Grenache and small doses of 17 other varieties.  This deeply hued beauty offers a stunning bouquet of blackberries, scorched earth, licorice, ground pepper, and sappy garrigue. I always find a Burgundian-like texture on this wine, and the 2020 is no exception - this is one to put into a blind tasting of Grand Cru Red Burgundies and shock your friends. Medium to full-bodied, ultra-pure, with grippy, sappy tannins, flawless balance, and a great finish, it's pure class all the way. It's going to need at least 4-6 years of bottle age, but this is a wine you don't want to miss, and one of the finest wines I've tasted from this estate."
