Parcels of old vines 60-100 years in age, planted in soils of great character and complexity, provide the grapes for this wine. They are picked when fully mature and meticulously sorted by hand to further enhance concentration.
Yields are very low: 15-20 hectoliters/hectare. These old parcels, in which different varieties are planted together, embody the symphony of 13 varieties, though Grenache predominates. The Boisrenard undergoes lengthy vatting and is aged in an entirely traditional way: no filtration or fining, then 18 months' ageing in oak barrels, bottling, and a spell of rest in our underground cellars.

Wine Spectator

Ripe, with the lush crème de cassis and crushed plum fruit of the vintage, showing excellent focus and drive, with racy acidity and taut, licorice-tinged structure. Turns flashy and exotic on the finish, with mulled blueberry, incense and fruitcake notes that are laid over impressive, graphite-filled grip. Best from 2010 through 2030.

Score: 95. —James Molesworth, October 15, 2009.

Wine Advocate

The luxury cuvee, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Boisrenard, has a very saturated purple color, a big, sweet nose of toast, chocolate, black currants, and black cherries, with hints of licorice and lavender. Lush as well as intriguingly spicy, this multi-layered, beautifully textured and voluptuous Chateauneuf du Pape seems surprisingly accessible for this cuvee, which normally need 2-5 years of bottle age to round into drinkable shape. However, there is plenty of richness, and the wine should evolve for 15 or more years. (92+)

Score: 92. —Robert Parker, October 2009.
