TASTING NOTES
An excellent example of white Châteauneuf: gently aromatic, with notes of pears, apricots, hawthorn and fennel, then round and textured in the mouth, with a seam of minerality providing focus.

PRODUCER

The Coulon family at Domaine de Beaurenard combine ambition and modesty to winning effect. They have run this estate for seven generations (its history can be traced back even further, to 1695) and it currently consists of thirty-two hectares in Châteauneuf and twenty-five in Rasteau. All thirteen permitted varieties are found here, and the vines average forty-five years old.

VINEYARD
A rare product, as white wines only make up seven percent of the appellation’s total production, this wine is made from grapes grown on sandy soils. The harvest and grape selection is manual, with each picker being given two buckets, one for the finest bunches and one for the damaged or unripe grapes.

WINERY
After being sorted by hand, the grapes were pneumatically pressed to extract their juice at low pressure. The juice was then fermented at a controlled temperature and kept on its lees for several months. Between ten and twenty percent of the wine was aged in barrels with the remainder in vats for six months before bottling.

AWARDS & PRESS
“This has a gorgeous feel, with seamless, creamy layers of white peach, papaya, orange cream and heather honey, picking up salted butter and straw notes through the finish. This is hard to resist now, but should pick up even more nuance with modest cellaring.” – 93 points, Wine Spectator, November 2015
