Domaine de Beaurenard Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvée Boisrenard Blanc 2015
|Brand||Domaine de Beaurenard|
Wine AdvocateEven better than the base cuvee and up with the top whites in the appellation, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Boisrenard Blanc is a field blend of mostly Clairette and Roussanne (smaller amounts of Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc, Picpoul and Picardan) that was fermented and aged in barrel (20% being new). Tight, backwards and reserved, yet with tons of potential, this beauty gives up notes of ripe citrus, crushed rocks, spice and a hint of oak on the nose. Concentrated, fresh and impeccably balanced, it needs a year or so of bottle age and will evolve for a decade or more.
