There have been a number of spectacular vintages of Domaine de Beaurenard’s luxury cuvee, Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Boisrenard, but the 2001 may be the finest they have ever produced. An inky/purple color is accompanied by aromas of creme de cassis, melted licorice, graphite, and a touch of barrique. The explosive bouquet is followed by an expansive, full-bodied, powerful wine with great purity, tremendous multilayered flavor intensity, and beautifully integrated wood, acidity, and tannin. It possesses structure, grip, and a finish that lasts well over a minute. Despite its enormous richness and presence (aromatically and on the palate), it requires 2-3 years of cellaring, and should keep for 15-18. It is a brilliant success! (RP)
The 2001 Domaine de Beaurenard Châteauneuf-du-Pape Boisrenard is a blend of 60% old-vine Grenache (70-100 year), and 40% other varieties (field blend), that’s aged for 18 months in small oak barrels, with only being 20% new. The wine is a tremendous effort that is just now starting to shed some of its modern elevage, showing gorgeous aromas of crème de cassis, spice, white chocolate, and licorice laced-garrigue on the nose. This is followed by a full bodied, decadently textured wine that possesses fantastic concentration, beautiful precision, and a blockbuster finish. Still young, but far from unapproachable, this should continue to perform over the coming decade or longer.
This continues to be one of the Coulons' best efforts to date, with stunning, creamy mouthfeel to the layer upon layer of fig sauce, currant confiture and blueberry paste flavors. That range of fruit is studded with dark licorice snap and Turkish coffee notes, backed by a long graphite spine that holds together the finish. A classic version of the modern style. (JM, Web-2012)
