Even better than a previous bottle, the 2001 Domaine de Beaurenard Châteauneuf-du-Pape is drinking wonderfully, showing an evolved, complex bouquet of earthy black cherry, spice box, and licorice aromas on the nose, medium+ body, good concentration, and a long, pure finish. There’s plenty of life left, and this should solid Châteauneuf should continue to show well for another 3-5 years.
One of the Coulon’s finest examples of their regular cuvee of Chateauneuf du Pape, the 2001 exhibits a deep ruby/purple color, medium to full body, and loads of creme de cassis fruit intermixed with hints of white chocolate, smoke, licorice, and wood. Pure and textured as well as elegant, this beauty will be at its peak between 2005-2014. (RP)
Still juicy and lively, delivering a mouthfilling range of plum, blueberry, blackberry and black cherry fruit, augmented by lots of toasted spice and a snappy licorice edge on the medium-weight finish. Very tasty.—2001 Châteauneuf-du-Pape non-blind retrospective (November 2011). Drink now through 2018. (JM, Web Only -2012)
