If you’re not familiar with the Coulon family and the Beaurenard name, they’re one of the longest tenured winemakers in the Southern Rhone and they helped to establish the Chateauneuf-du-Pape AOC.
Now in the hands of brothers brothers Frederic and Daniel Coulon, Domaine de Beaurenard has never been in such good hands. The winery has been a consistent critical darling over many, many years in the business – long before they graced the Thanksgiving cover of Wine Spectator in 2018.
In that same Wine Spectator issue – three of the top ten white Chateauneufs of the year went to Beaurenard. It’s a little taste of what these guys do.
But the Reds set the tone, especially in the past decade and with good reason. They’re always lights out. The big question this year will be if the signature Beaurenard CDP Cuvee can get scored at 94 points or higher for a 6th(!) consecutive vintage dating back to 2015. That type of barrage of high scores in a country where the weather has been variable speaks to a consistent excellence that few can claim.
