1998 Domaine de Beaurenard "Boisrenard" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #160285 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Noticeably more youthful than the classic cuvee, the 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Boisrenard is roughly 85% Grenache and 15% Mourvedre, yet it includes all 13 of the permitted varieties as well. Coming mainly from the lieux-dits of Beaurenard, Cabrieres and Coteaux de l'Ange, it spent 18 months in small barrel. Currants, black cherries, new leather and wild herb characteristics all emerge from this full-bodied, seamless and elegant Chateauneuf du Pape. Much more civilized and polish than in its youth, it's fully mature, but one of the more youthful, vibrant wines of the vintage today. (JD)  (8/2015)

96 points Wine Spectator

 A thoroughly enticing nose of spice box, truffle and chocolate ganache leads to a succulent palate that's still richly layered with raspberry and linzer torte notes, with a superlong, fine-grained finish. Shows the richness of the vintage on the palate, with the domaine's extra aromatic fireworks. Has a long life ahead of it. Drink now through 2025. (JM)  (9/2007)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Full ruby-red. Redcurrant, roasted nuts, mocha and sexy oak spices on the nose. Quite full and strong in the mouth, but given shape and brightness by lively acidity. Intense red berry and spice flavors are not at all overwhelmed by oak. Lush and concentrated. Here the tannins are rather fine and well-buffered, and nicely sweetened by the oak treatment.

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.
