DOMAINE DE BEAURENARD
Châteauneuf-du-Pape White


 

VINTAGE
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.

GRAPE VARIETIES
A blend of the 6 white grape varieties of the appellation.
(Clairette blanche & Rose, Grenache Blanc & Gris, Bourboulenc, Roussanne, Picpoul, Picardan).

WINEMAKING AND MATURING
The grapes are hand-picked and sorted in the vineyard. Long, gentle pressing, co-fermentation and maturing in stainless steel vats, small foudres and oak barrels for 6 months.

TASTING NOTES
This wine symbolizes our love for white Châteauneuf-du-Pape. We find delicate floral notes, a fresh and dynamic texture with a salty finish. Just like a walk in our Provençal “Garrigue”.
