Châteauneuf-du-Pape Boisrenard Red


VINTAGE 2017
After a particularly cold January that allowed the sap to descend completely and the vines to rest thoroughly, 2017 experienced many different weather conditions in the course of the growing cycle. This caused a high incidence of poor fruit set, particularly in the highly sensitive Grenache, resulting in low yields.
However, frequent applications of healing biodynamic preparations maintained the clusters in excellent condition, ensuring a healthy crop.

TERROIR
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.

GRAPE VARIETIES
Selected plots, of mainly old vines of the 13 varieties of the appellation planted together, 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.

TASTING NOTES
Made from old vines of different varieties growing together, with moderate yields, Boisrenard is characterized by the silky weave of its tannins and its generous fruit. A wine of immense depth.
