Domaine de Beaurenard

7 Generations Of Wine Growers 
Grow up in these magical
cellars and you're bound to become a winegrower!

In the 14th century, during their stays in Avignon, the popes – and especially Pope John XXII – built a papal castle in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Impressed by the area's exceptional soils, they established vineyards on the slopes surrounding the château and were instrumental in promoting the local wine's reputation around the world.
Domaine de Beaurenard in Châteauneuf-du-Pape has been a family-run estate for seven
generations.
A notarial act dated 16 December 1695 mentions “Bois Renard”, which over time has become “Beaurenard”.

The Coulon brothers, Daniel and Frédéric, have taken over from Paul and Régine and are striving to sustain tradition.
The estate covers 32 hectares (a little under 80 acres) of vines in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and 25 hectares in the Côtes du Rhône Villages Rasteau AOC area.  

Soils Blessed By The Gods
The pebbles the 13 grape varieties the sun and the Mistral have been joining forces for centuries to give birth to each vintage of the Châteauneuf du Pape appellation. The terroir of Châteauneuf-du-Pape is unique: here the large sun-warmed stones diffuse a gentle, providential heat that helps the grapes to mature and their juice to concentrate. The Domaine is home to the " Symphony of 13 varieties" typical of this AOC, which provide aromatic complexity, strength and balance.

For the red wines, four varieties dominate : Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault, supplemented by Counoise, Muscardin, Terret Noir and Vaccarèse. The whites are made from white-grape vines : Clairette, Roussane, Bourboulenc, Grenache Blanc, Picardan and Picpoul.

The vines are 45 years ld on average, and their yield in Châteauneuf  varies from 15-35hl/ha.The Rasteau vines are planted in clay-chalk soil with a blue-clay subsoil, on fully south-facing slopes and terraces. Yields are low : 25-38 hl/ha.

Still Working Manually 
Meticulous work is performed all around the years, and particularly during four intense periods :
Pruning is done solely by the estate staff: each person tends to the same plot over the long term, crafting their vines like sculptures.

Debudding of all the vines: this prevents leaf build-up around the bunches, ensure small yields, and ventilates the vine-trunks by letting natural light through. Several other jobs are also done while the grapes are still unripe: placing the shoots between the trellis wires, to which they are then fastened; and green harvesting if necessary.

Soil-working and controlled grass cover are supplemented by a team of seasonal workers who, during long weeks, hoe between the vines – a very strenuous, painstaking job in our stony soils.

Harvesting with all grapes hand-picked and sorted.
This type of extremely precise cultivation and monitoring means we obtain healthy grapes, the only way to make wines of high-quality and concentration.
