Domaine-de-Beaurenard-Chateauneuf-du-Pape-Boisrenard-2012

Domaine de Beaurenard, Chateauneuf du Pape ''Boisrenard'', 2016

“More complex and nuanced as well as powerful, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Boisrenard is a field blend (two-thirds Grenache and the rest a mix of varieties) that spent 18 months in a combination of older barrels, new barrels, and foudre. Its deep purple/ruby color is followed by a sensational perfume of blackberries, black raspberries, Asian spices, and graphite. With full-bodied richness, building tannin, remarkable purity, and a huge finish, it’s going to rival the 2001 as the best vintage to date. You should have this in your cellar.”
- Jeb Dunnuck (98 points)

“Just like the regular cuvée, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Boisrenard includes all 18 of the appellation’s permitted varieties, although it’s mostly (66%) Grenache Noir. Strawberries and raspberries shine on the nose, followed by a full-bodied palate that’s creamy-silky and lush but also bright, lively and long. It’s a super effort, at what should be a realistic price.”
- Wine Advocate (96 points)

“Solidly built, with a sappy core of kirsch, blackberry paste and red licorice flavors tightly coiled together and backed by roasted apple wood, warm stone and tobacco leaf notes through the finish. The beautiful fruit should develop nicely with extended cellaring, as this has serious grip and drive. Best from 2020 through 2040. 800 cases made, 250 cases imported.”
- Wine Spectator (96 points)

“Brilliant violet. A sexy, expansive nose evokes smoke-accented dark berries, candied licorice and a hint of potpourri. Sappy, well-delineated black and blue fruit preserve flavors show vibrant mineral lift and no rough edges. In an ample but surprisingly energetic style, finishing sweet, floral and extremely long and revealing just a whisper of fine-grained tannins.”
- Josh Raynolds, Vinous (94 points)

“Good fruit-definition in terms of aromas and flavors here. Fresh, brambly, summer berries with blood-orange and wild-herb threads. The tannins are firm, but polished. Enjoy now or hold.”
- James Suckling (92 points)
