The Chateauneuf-du-Pape Boisrenard is from the oldest vines on the property, from 65-100+ years old. It is a vineyard in which all 13 authorized varieties of grape are mixed together, and co-fermented. The entire process is very traditional, with lengthy fermentation times, 18 months of oak barrel ageing before additional ageing in bottle. This is a serious Chateauneuf, with tons of red and blue fruit, spice, earth and mineral notes. This wine can easily age for 20+ years, although it's easily approachable in the first 5.

96 POINTS, WINE ADVOCATE
Mostly (66%) Grenache, with smaller amounts of Mourvèdre and Syrah (12% each), and tiny amounts of the other permitted varieties, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Boisrenard is inky in color, with aromas that hint at toasted coconut, black cherries and chocolate. It's a rich, decadent, full-bodied sexpot of a CdP that possess admirable concentration, a wonderfully creamy-silky texture and a long, long finish.
