DOMAINE DE BEAURENARD
2019 vintage is in line with the top vintages of the decade. After a nice winter, spring came slowly, where our famous wind “Mistral” helped keep very healthy environments in the vineyard
during that important growing season.
The last week of June, Rhône Valley vineyards went through a heat wave with temperatures above 45°C (113 °F).
Fortunately, our biodynamic sprays of horn dungs, silicas, chamomiles, nettles and essential oils, combined with the good water reserve of the soils from 2018,
helped the vines to continue their growth in great conditions. Thanks to August and September gentle rains we were able to pick beautiful grapes, healthy and balanced.
Châteauneuf-du-Pape is characterized by the diversity of its soils, with a mosaic of plots where different varieties grow together on limestone rock, round pebbles
on a clay substrate with varying amounts of iron, and fine sedimentary sand.
A blend of the 13 varieties of the appellation, predominantly Grenache.
WINEMAKING AND MATURING
The grapes are hand-picked and sorted in the vineyard. Co-fermentation, long vatting for soft extractions. Matured for 12 months in conical vats, foudres and barrels.
Domaine de Beaurenard’s flagship wine is a quintessential blend, reflecting all
the diversity of the terroir and the perfect synergy that exists between the soils
and the grapes. It offers a supple and refined texture associated with a delicate
aromatic palette that is the result of a constant quest for freshness..
