Winemaker Notes

A rare product, because white wines only make up seven per cent of the AOC's output. But this wine is a family speciality, as reflected by a few bottles of the 1929 vintage. The choice of soil is paramount: only a few parcels truly promote the fusion of soil and traditional white-grape varieties.

The 2015 Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc has a beautiful shiny coat with golden green highlights. Stylish and expressive notes of fruit and white flowers on the nose and a superb attack on the mouth. The notes of fruit and flowers are relayed by a very nice, elegant finished. Balanced and very seductive.

The wine is made solely with white grapes: 30% Clairette, 20% Grenache Blanc, 25% Bourboulenc, 22% Roussane and three percent Picpoul and Picardan.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A straight up beautiful white, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc checks in as a mix of 30% Clairette, 20% Grenache Blanc, 25% Bourboulenc, 22% Roussanne, and the rest Picpoul and Picardan. Fresh, long, medium-bodied and beautifully pure, it has classy notes of citrus blossom, crushed rocks and white peach that continue to develop with time in the glass. Brought up mostly in stainless steel, with 18% in barrels (3% of which were new), this is a perfect white to buy a case of for drinking anytime over the coming decade or longer.

In 1344, it was reported to the Pope living in Avignon that "the principal vineyards are Bois Renard, Blacquieres, Bois de Senechaux, Cabrieres, Carbonnieres, Colombis, and Mont Redon." The Coulon family has farmed that area named Bois Renard since they purchased it in 1695; seven generations of dedication, meticulous care, and excellence. Adding vineyards over the past 300 years, Domaine de Beaurenard is now 74 acres of Chateauneuf du Pape in several parcels, and over 60 acres of Côtes du Rhône located primarily in Rasteau.

The Coulons have estate-bottled their wines since the early 1900’s. Paul Coulon's father and grandfather were instrumental in creating the regulations of the Appellation Contrôlée system (Chateauneuf du Pape was France's first appellation contrôlée, in 1929). Detail oriented, meticulous to the point of perfectionism, visitors can peruse not only the informative Musée du Vin below their Rasteau vineyard, but detailed volumes for each vintage with ground temperatures, rainfall, hours of sunlight, etc.

Domaine de Beaurenard portfolio includes: Cotes du Rhone Rouge & Rose, Cotes du Rhone Villages Rasteau, Chateauneuf du Pape Rouge & Blanc and Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Boisrenard which is consistently one of Robert Parker and Stephen Tanzer's most highly rated Rhone wines.

Famous for its full-bodied, seductive and spicy reds with flavor and aroma characteristics reminiscent of black cherry, baked raspberry, garrigue, olive tapenade, lavender and baking spice, Chateauneuf-du-Pape is the leading sub-appellation of the southern Rhône River Valley. Large pebbles resembling river rocks, called "galets" in French, dominate most of the terrain. The stones hold heat and reflect it back up to the low-lying gobelet-trained vines. Though the galets are typical, they are not prominent in every vineyard. Chateau Rayas is the most obvious deviation with very sandy soil.

According to law, eighteen grape varieties are allowed in Chateauneuf-du-Pape and most wines are blends of some mix of these. For reds, Grenache is the star player with Mourvedre and Syrah coming typically second. Others used include Cinsault, Counoise and occasionally Muscardin, Vaccarèse, Picquepoul Noir and Terret Noir.

Only about 6-7% of wine from Chateauneuf-du-Pape is white. Blends and single-varietal bottlings are typically based on the soft and floral Grenache Blanc but Clairette, Bourboulenc and Roussanne are grown with some significance.

The wine of Chateauneuf-du-Pape takes its name from the relocation of the papal court to Avignon. The lore says that after moving in 1309, Pope Clément V (after whom Chateau Pape-Clément in Pessac-Léognan is named) ordered that vines were planted. But it was actually his successor, John XXII, who established the vineyards. The name however, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, translated as "the pope's new castle," didn’t really stick until the 19th century.

Full-bodied and flavorful, white Rhône blends originate from France’s Rhône Valley. Today these blends are also becoming popular in other regions. Typically some combination of Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier form the basis of a white Rhône blend with varying degrees of flexibility depending on the exact appellation. Somm Secret—In the Northern Rhône, blends of Marsanne and Roussanne are common but the south retains more variety. Marsanne, Roussanne as well as Bourboulenc, Clairette, Picpoul and Ugni Blanc are typical.
