Ce châteauneuf délivre un plaisir gourmand et intense, mais il pourra tout aussi bien être gardé une dizaine d'années en cave. Voilà une magnifique révélation d'un terroir racé. More info
The harvest is destemmed, slightly crushed, and placed in the vat for a long time to extract as many phenolic compounds as possible (tannins for structure, anthocyanins for colour, among others). Elevage lasts for 12 to 15 months in barrels, truncated tanks and tuns, making the wine even more harmonious. The palate features a cherry-like crispness, accompanied by flavours of scrubland. The tannins are extremely elegant.
The family run Domaine Beaurenard has been passed down over seven generations and is run today by brothers, Daniel and Frédéric Coulon. There is plenty to keep them busy with 32 hectares in Châteauneuf and 25 hectares in Côtes-du-Rhône-Villages Rasteau. The domain is known for powerful wines and favours ageing potential and the aromatic rewards that come with time, over instantly pleasing cuvées. The wines are fermented in wooden vats and then barrelled and matured over fine lees for between 9 and 18 months.The property was certified organic (Ecocert) as from its 2010 vintage and biodynamic (Demeter) from 2011. Nothing has changed as an outcome of these accreditations but they give the domain ""official recognition”. The crops are sprayed regularly with plant preparations. In the vineyards, the soil is worked without herbicides, carefully-dynamised manure is spread, and a sensible level of grass cover is maintained.
