TASTING NOTES
From the oldest vines on the estate comes this dense, inky, hugely concentrated mouthful of blackberry fruit. Fresher than so many luxury cuvées, this is benchmark stuff, with notes of blueberries and oriental spices adding complexity.

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
Parcels of old vines, between sixty and 100 years old, are used for this wine. They grow in complex soils, and the pudding stones so typical of the appellation provide extra heat to help the grapes mature. The grapes are harvested by hand.

WINERY
Grapes were destemmed, slightly crushed and placed in a fermentation vat. A long fermentation period of between twenty-six and thirty-one days gave structure and colour to the wine. The wine was aged for eighteen months in French oak, of which twenty percent was new.

AWARDS & PRESS
“Offers a grippy feel, with taut licorice and tar notes stretching from start to finish. Ripe plum, raspberry and blackberry fruit flavors fill in the core, while hints of anise and juniper hang in the background. The finish reveals a bolt of graphite. Should age very nicely.” – 95 points, Wine Spectator, October 2014
