Winemaker's Notes

#19 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2006!

Critical Acclaim

"Loaded with rich, dark layers of black currant, blackberry, truffle, tar, mocha and bittersweet cocoa, this pumps out both fruit and terroir on the gripping finish. Immense in scale and depth, this is hard to lay off now, but should be even more impressive when it drops its muscle to show more elegance (that will take a while, though)."
97 Points

"The structured and backward, inky ruby/purple-colored 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Boisrenard offers notes of chocolate, cocoa, smoke, creme de cassis and black cherry liqueur. Some licorice also makes it into the picture. The wine is full-bodied, layered, softer than previous vintages, with tremendous voluptuousness to the texture as well as an expansive, broad, persistent finish."
96 Points

"Deep, dark red color. Highly expressive, very ripe aromas of dark cherry, plum liqueur, black cardamom, bitter chocolate, espresso and exotic oak spices. An enormous, outsized wine, with broad, sweet dark fruit and mocha flavors accented by pepper and oak spice. Boasts a lush, even unctuous texture, but as rich and reflective of the vintage as this is, there is also wonderful focus and energy."
94 Points

"Owned by the Coulon family since 1695, Boisrenard comes from parcels of vines from the Domaine de Beaurenard. The wine is dominated by ancient vines, which gives an intensity to this wine. It has great black, dark fruit flavors that match the tannins. Some new wood flavors give a polished edge to the wine. It is both powerful and elegant."

Learn About Chateauneuf-du-Pape

(shah-too-NUHF due Pahp) Southern Rhone's landmark region, Chateauneuf du Pape, was the first region to gain AC status in France. That was the 1920s - it's history goes much further back than that. As the name suggests, the wine region was named after the new papal home, referring to the period of time in the 1300's when the pope resided in Avignon instead of Rome. Notable Facts...

Learn About Rhone Red Blends
