Domaine de Beaurenard, Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc 2020
Following a mild, wet winter that replenished groundwater reserves, the season was notable for its precocity. Frost damage from the episode of March 25 was, very fortunately, limited, and in the course of the equally mild and damp spring that ensued, regular applications of tisanes and essential oils effectively protected the crop. Flowering that started in the second week of May confirmed the early nature of the vintage. The plentiful water resources accumulated over winter and the occasional summer showers ensured a progressive and optimum ripening of the grapes. The harvest was particularly splendid and picking lasted from August 25 to the final days of September.
This wine symbolizes our love for white Châteauneuf-du-Pape. We find delicate floral notes, a fresh and dynamic texture with a salty finish. Just like a walk in our Provençal “Garrigue”.
