Domaine de Beaurenard Chateauneuf-du-Pape Boisrenard 2020


99 Points, Jeb Dunnuck – 96 Points, Decanter

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 Boisrenard 2020 is one of the greatest CDP bottlings that this great family has ever made. The 99-point review from Jeb Dunnuck is really just icing on the cake. This is our top CDP cellar selection of the year and really one for collector’s to behold. It’s a beauty.

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.

Full and generous on the palate, no lack of fruit or depth here. Powerful and plentiful fine tannins and a great, rising sense of energy and freshness. Impressive, with real finesse and precision – no excess weight, but great surging intensity and freshness. Contains at least 1% of all the 18 possible varieties of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Grapes are grown across a variety of soil types in the lieux-dits Beau Renard, Cabrières and Coteau de l’Ange, vinified mostly in tronconic wooden vats, then aged in oak barrels of various sizes and ages, including 5% new oak.
