Winemaker's Notes

Made from parcels of old vines (60-90 years in age) planted in terroirs of great personality and complexity. Grapes picked when fully ripe and meticulously hand-sorted for extra concentration. Very low yield: 15-20 hl/hectare. These old vines were planted in a mix of varieties: the symphony of 13 varieties is thus in evidence, but with a majority of Grenache. This wine spends a long time in vats, and is matured in the most traditional ways: no filtration, 18 months ageing in oak casks, fined, bottled and left to rest in our cellars.

"The 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Boisrenard boasts an inky black/purple color in addition to enormous body, and thick, unctuously-textured flavors of cassis, licorice, smoke, and meat. Exquisitely pure, ripe, concentrated, and promising, with copious quantities of sweet, ripe tannin, it should be at its finest between 2006-2018. This is a splendid, full-throttle, super-concentrated effort."
-The Wine Advocate
