Winemaker's Notes

Parcels of old vines 60-100 years in age, planted in soils of great character and complexity, provide the grapes for this wine.

Critical Acclaim

"This powerful red offers a muscular core of roasted fig, blackberry and cassis fruit framed by thick, mesquite-tinged tannins, with loads of tobacco, pepper and tar coating the mouthwatering finish. Yet despite its power, this is racy and defined. Best from 2014 through 2024."
96 Points

"The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Boisrenard (60% Grenache and 40% other varietals from 60- to 100-year-old vines) reveals a hint of toasty vanillin from its aging in small oak, but I have been buying these wines for many years, and that characteristic usually disappears by age 7 or 8. This dense ruby/purple-tinged, round, generous, plump, succulent effort reveals hints of graphite, black currants, blackberries and kirsch. Heady as well as softer than most vintages tend to be at this age, with admirable concentration, purity and texture, it should drink nicely for 10-15 years. "
93 Points

"Deep ruby. Expressive aromas of red and dark berry preserves, cola, sandalwood and vanilla. Offers juicy black raspberry and boysenberry flavors lifted by tangy acidity and complicated by a suave floral quality. The long, powerful finish features intense oak spices. Give this wine a little time to absorb its wood element.
