DOMAINE DE BEAURENARD

 

RHONE VALLEY, FRANCE

 

 

In the wine world, tradition is not some dusty concept, a data point invoked for the sake of establishing lineage. Among the legacy houses, it’s present tense; it lives. To drink their wines is, quite literally, to taste a history, a land, a culture.

 

So it is with Domaine de Beaurenard, a family-run estate that has been making wine in Châteauneuf-du-Pape for eight generations. Brothers Daniel & Frédéric Coulon, together with Daniel’s sons Victor and Antonin, have taken a noble inheritance and, with respect for the past and a vision for the future, built upon it. Year after year they not only succeed in capturing the character and soul of this legendary region in the bottle, they also manage to do it at exceptional value—making their wines highly sought-after by collectors and oenophiles around the world. (And by us!) We are thrilled to bring you four of the finest wines in their portfolio: the 2020 Beaurenard Côtes du Rhône; the 2019 Beaurenard ‘Rasteau,’ the 2019 Beaurenard Châteauneuf-du-Pape; and finally, the 2019 Beaurenard Châteauneuf-du-Pape ‘Boisrenard.’

 

All the classic Beaurenard hallmarks are on display in this captivating quartet, from the striking first impressions they make—boldness, freshness, and complexity on the nose—to the charms that reveal themselves over the minutes and hours as you sip and linger, the beautiful balance and long finishes that critics Robert Parker and Jeb Dunnuck have long praised. Of special note for collectors: each possesses enough ripe tannins, acidity, and class to mature in the bottle for up to two decades. 

 

Among winemakers and wine lovers, it is almost an article of faith that the quality of wines in Châteauneuf-du-Pape can be traced to the rolled pebbles, gentle sun, and mistral air, and the Beaurenards are especially serious about their connection to the land. They have long regarded themselves as its caretakers, rather than its owners. All their grapes are cultivated organically and biodynamically, the better to convey the terroir of a patch of earth that really is unlike any other—a mysterious and almost mystical place; truly, it is a place of magic. Act now! This is an extraordinary opportunity to drink wonderfully well now and in the years to come.
