93 Point Wine Spectator: Provides a textbook display of the vintage's profile, with racy acidity leading the way, allowing the ripe blueberry, plum and blackberry fruit flavors to course along while toasted spice and pastis notes fill in on the nicely grippy, saturated-but-fresh finish. A nice blue-chip for the cellar. Best from 2013 through 2023.
We make highly concentrated wines of great finesse, elegance and minerality. This is the true signature and pedigree of the local soils, which makes Beaurenard wines suited to lengthy ageing. They can also be drunk young, to procure an intense, lush pleasure.
Wine Maker Notes
The bunches are picked and sorted by hand. They are then destemmed, slightly crushed and placed in a fermenting vat. These steps, combined with long vatting, gently extract the maximum amount of phenolic constituents – tannins, anthocyans and resveratrol – which give the wine its structure and colour and also have health-promoting properties. During the 12-15 months the wine spends in barrels and truncated vats, we continue to refine its structure to achieve balance and harmony.
