Domaine de Beaurenard, Chateauneuf-du-Pape "Boisrenard" Blanc 2019
2019 vintage is in line with the top vintages of the decade. After a nice winter, spring came slowly, where our famous wind “Mistral” helped keep very healthy environments in the vineyard during that important growing season. The last week of June, Rhône Valley vineyards went through a heat wave with temperatures above 45°C (113 °F).
Fortunately, our biodynamic sprays of horn dungs, silicas, chamomiles, nettles and essential oils, combined with the good water reserve of the soils from 2018, helped the vines to continue their growth in great conditions. Thanks to August and September gentle rains we were able to pick beautiful grapes, healthy and balanced.
Intense notes of hazelnut, grilled almond, and brioche for this Boisrenard White 2019. Its freshness and tension in the mouth reveal a distinguished wine with a superbly saline finish.
