Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 97

There have been a number of spectacular vintages of Domaine de Beaurenard's luxury cuvee, Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Boisrenard, but the 2001 may be the finest they have ever produced. An inky/purple color is accompanied by aromas of creme de cassis, melted licorice, graphite, and a touch of barrique. The explosive bouquet is followed by an expansive, full-bodied, powerful wine with great purity, tremendous multilayered flavor intensity, and beautifully integrated wood, acidity, and tannin. It possesses structure, grip, and a finish that lasts well over a minute. Despite its enormous richness and presence (aromatically and on the palate), it requires 2-3 years of cellaring, and should keep for 15-18. It is a brilliant success!

Seductive, ultramodern, dark-purple, blockbuster Châteauneuf. Oozes rich, ripe flavors in a silky, caressing texture that's coated by roasted/toasted oak accents ranging from tar to grilled meat, toasted bread to roasted chestnuts and all sorts of spices. A showpiece, this is one to lay down. But don't expect much Châteauneuf subtlety. 1,000 cases made.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88-91?

($65) Good full ruby. Aromas of currant, tobacco and spicy oak. Sweet and suave in the middle palate, but less intensely flavored than the 2000. Tannins seem a bit gritty, even dry, perhaps from the wine's oak element. Finishes with a note of licorice. This may well be passing through an awkward stage of its evolution.

Excellent length, red berries, mid palate wealth. Needs another 7+ years.

Start with the finish -- mouth watering, cool and lengthy, such a pleasant way to end. Decant, or patiently wait for this one because it is great now and gaining strength with time. Are you getting the garrigue, peppercorns, spice, tangy plum & lingonberry? The youthful tannic astringency from black tea? Complex, big boned, yet so well crafted, hitting all the right notes. Try your next in 2013 and see what else comes forward. Outstanding.

Wine Varietal: Rhone Blend

"Rhone blends" are typically red wines comprised of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre in varying proportions. However, the red blends may also include any of the traditional varieties grown in the Rhone Valley such as the 14 allowed in the Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation. There are also Rhone blend roses which use the same varieties as their red counterparts. White Rhone blends are typically some combination of Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier, Grenache blanc, and lesser varieties.
