Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red

70% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, and 10% Cinsault and other AOC varieties.
The bunches are picked and sorted by hand. They are then destemmed, slightly crushed and placed in a fermenting vat. These steps, combined with long vatting, gently extract the maximum amount of phenolic constituents – tannins, anthocyans and resveratrol – which give the wine its structure and colour and also have health-promoting properties.
During the 12-15 months the wine spends in barrels and truncated vats, we continue to refine its structure to achieve balance and harmony.

We make highly concentrated wines of great finesse, elegance and minerality. This is the true signature and pedigree of the local soils, which makes Beaurenard wines suited to lengthy ageing. They can also be drunk young, to procure an intense, lush pleasure.

Tasting comments: The attack is round and the wine is fleshy with style. Very fruity, mineral with spicy notes. Very charming wine that will both delight and age.
