DOMAINE DE BEAURENARD
Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red


VINTAGE 2017
After a particularly cold January that allowed the sap to descend completely and the vines to rest thoroughly, 2017 experienced many different weather conditions in the course of the growing cycle. This caused a high incidence of poor fruit set, particularly in the highly sensitive Grenache, resulting in low yields. However, frequent applications of healing biodynamic preparations maintained the clusters in excellent condition, ensuring a healthy crop.

TERROIR
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.

GRAPE VARIETIES
A blend of the 13 varieties of the appellation, predominantly Grenache.

WINEMAKING AND MATURING
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.

TASTING NOTES
Domaine de Beaurenard’s flagship wine is a quintessential blend, reflecting all the diversity of the terroir and the perfect synergy that exists between the soils and the grapes. It offers a supple and refined texture associated with a delicate aromatic palette that is the result of a constant quest for freshness.
