Domaine de Beaurenard (Paul Coulon et Fils) Châteauneuf-du-Pape Boisrenard

From DOMAINE DE BEAURENARD
70% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, and 10% Cinsault and other AOC varieties.
The bunches are picked and sorted by hand. They are then destemmed, slightly crushed and placed in a fermenting vat. These steps, combined with long vatting, gently extract the maximum amount of phenolic constituents – tannins, anthocyans and resveratrol – which give the wine its structure and colour and also have health-promoting properties.
During the 12-15 months the wine spends in barrels and truncated vats, we continue to refine its structure to achieve balance and harmony.
From another source
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 underground cellars.
