"Even better than the base cuvee and up with the top whites in the appellation, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Boisrenard Blanc is a field blend of mostly Clairette and Roussanne (smaller amounts of Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc, Picpoul and Picardan) that was fermented and aged in barrel (20% being new). Tight, backwards and reserved, yet with tons of potential, this beauty gives up notes of ripe citrus, crushed rocks, spice and a hint of oak on the nose. Concentrated, fresh and impeccably balanced, it needs a year or so of bottle age and will evolve for a decade or more."

"Ripe, with enticing star fruit, yellow apple and mirabelle plum notes coursing through, underscored by chamomile and verbena accents that lend this focus and cut. Judicious toast weaves through the background, letting the fruit play out beautifully on the finish. Drink now through 2020.Äî"

2015 Beaurenard Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc 'Boisrenard'
Domaine de Beaurenard

Boisrenard Blanc is made from selected vines aged 60-100 years. They include the AOC's six white-grape varieties, with Clairette and Roussane the mainstays.

Yields are very low: 15-20 hectoliters/hectare. The juice is fermented directly in barrels, where the wines are then aged on fine lees for 6-10 months. No malo.

Only a few barrels are made per vintage.
