2009 Domaine Beaurenard "Cuvée Boisrenard" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1109453 96 points Wine Spectator

 *Highly Recommended* This powerful red offers a muscular core of roasted fig, blackberry and cassis fruit framed by thick, mesquite-tinged tannins, with loads of tobacco, pepper and tar coating the finish. Yet despite its power, this is racy and defined, with mouthwatering cut on the finish, where the mesquite note lingers. Ambitiously toasty, yet fully integrated. On par with the superb 2001 and 2005 vintages. Best from 2014 through 2024.  (10/2011)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Boisrenard (60% Grenache and 40% other varietals from 60- to 100-year-old vines) reveals a hint of toasty vanillin from its aging in small oak, but I have been buying these wines for many years, and that characteristic usually disappears by age 7 or 8. This dense ruby/purple-tinged, round, generous, plump, succulent effort reveals hints of graphite, black currants, blackberries and kirsch. Heady as well as softer than most vintages tend to be at this age, with admirable concentration, purity and texture, it should drink nicely for 10-15 years.  (10/2011)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Deep ruby. Expressive aromas of red and dark berry preserves, cola, sandalwood and vanilla. Offers juicy black raspberry and boysenberry flavors lifted by tangy acidity and complicated by a suave floral quality. The long, powerful finish features intense oak spices. Give this wine a little time to absorb its wood element. 91(+?)  (2/2012)

K&L Notes

Additional commentary from Robert Parker: "One of the great old families of Chateauneuf du Pape, the Coulons have been biodynamically farming their vineyards for decades, which can't be easy given the fact that they own over two dozen parcels spread throughout the appellation. The 2009s performed even better this year than they did last year prior to bottling." (10/2011) 14.5% abv.

Rhone Blends



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
