Parcels of old vines 60-100 years in age, planted in soils of great character and complexity, provide the grapes for this wine. They are picked when fully mature and meticulously sorted by hand to further enhance concentration. Yields are very low: 15-20 hectoliters/hectare. These old parcels, in which different varieties are planted together, embody the symphony of 13 varieties, though Grenache predominates. The Boisrenard undergoes lengthy vatting and is aged in an entirely traditional way: no filtration or fining, then 18 months' ageing in oak barrels, bottling, and a spell of rest in our underground cellars.

Wine SpectatorContains some exotic fruit-blueberry paste, boysenberry and raspberry confiture, and pastis-soaked currant-but it's a brick house too, with Turkish coffee, bittersweet chocolate and lots of singed wood spice notes fanning out on the finish. A great spine allows the elements to echo through the finish without faltering. Best from 2015 through 2030. 750 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe outstanding 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Boisrenard offers toasty new oak, a chocolaty, sweet black cherry jamminess, black currant, licorice and graphite characteristics. While it will does not rival the great Boisrenards produced in the past, it is a top-flight wine that should drink well for 10-15 years.
