Domaine de Beaurenard Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Boisrenard 2011
|Brand||Domaine de Beaurenard|
Wine SpectatorOffers a fleshy, inviting feel, with dark plum, currant paste and steeped blackberry notes, studded with anise, fruitcake and cocoa details. A smoldering charcoal hint lines the finish. Shows solid depth for the vintage. Best from 2014 through 2024. 750 cases made.
Wine AdvocateEven better and showing a similar polished, elegant profile, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Boisrenard is a blend of 60% Grenache, and the rest a blend of all permitted grape varieties, that spent 18 months in 1- to 5-year-old barrels. Possessing thrilling notes of black raspberry, vanilla, licorice and crushed flowers on the nose, it flows onto the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, solid overall concentration, good acidity and sweet, silky tannin. Relatively approachable, especially by this cuvee's standards, it can be consumed now or cellared for a decade. Drink now-2023.
