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

"Contains 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."
97 Points

"Opaque ruby. Black raspberry and cherry on the fragrant, oak-spiced nose and in the mouth. Lush and open-knit but energetic, offering intense red and dark berry flavors and a sexy lavender pastille quality. Shows impressive power and energy on the long, floral-dominated finish. This is the most elegant and lithe bottling of Boisrenard that I can recall, but it's by no means a lightweight."
93 Points

"he 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."
