DOMAINE DE BEAURENARD red
Hachette Wine Guide 2006
The old tools of the family (all seven generations!) take the limelight here; and they're on show in the little Winegrower's Museum. Invitingly open style, intense colour, strong spice and oakiness (barrel-aged for 15 months), powerful and tannic. Very mature fruit. A highly characterful combination of Grenache (80%) and Syrah grapes. Best laid down for one to two years.
The Wine Advocate
89 - The more serious 2003 Côtes du Rhône Villages Rasteau Les Argiles Bleues exhibits a saturated ruby/purple color as well as a rich nose of melted chocolate, licorice, figs, and black cherry liqueur. Ripe, attractive, chunky, and substantial on the palate, with no hard edges, it should be consumed over the next 5-6 years.
