  • About this winery

    In the 14th century, during their stays in Avignon, the popes – 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.

  • Tasting notes

    Nice and bright ruby colour with a nose of red fruit and a discreet touch of spices (pepper and rosemary). Lovely fruit and spice flavours on the palate with a hint of liquorice. Mineral notes lead to great freshness and remarkable character. Very good drinkability.

  • Viticultural notes

    Siliceous-clay soils and stony and steep hillsides adorn the vineyards at Domaine de Beaurenard. However, most of the land is carefully covered in grass to control production (Yields are low 30hl/Ha). The yields obtained for the wine are a mix dominated by Grenache (70%) for body and structure, combined with the fruit and elegance of Syrah. A touch of Mourvedre and Cinsault (30%) is used to further enhance flavour.

  • Winemaking notes

    The grapes are destemmed and fermented for 15 to 24 days using wild yeast. The wine is then clarified and aged for 12 months primarily in vats, with a small part in oak “foudres” (30hl barrels) before bottling is completed at the Estate.
