In brilliant shape, and a delight to drink. A mature nose with strawberries, roast earth and some tobacco. The palate is fine, remarkably fresh with focused red fruits and a generally autumnal  nature.

Known at the time as Domain Paul Coulon et Fils, and subsequently re-christined as Domaine de Beaurenard, the estate has been under the Coulon family ownership and management for since 1695 (!). The estate covers 32 hectares in Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Rasteau, and the best grapes have always been used to produce their top cuvee, Boisrenard.
