2017 BEAURENARD
CHATEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE BLANC
$39.99 BTL./$479.88 CASE

Not only does Domaine de Beaurenard make killer reds, they also make some of the region’s most prolific white wines. 30% Clairette, 20% Grenache Blanc, 25% Bourboulenc, 25% Roussane. The classic cuvee always rocks out even at an early stage although les freres Coulon really, really like old white Chateauneuf as evidenced by them serving 1982 and 1984 on recent visits.

Fresh and alive aromas. Cool nights of 2017 are in full display here. Lilies, blossoms, peach and anise. Fragility and finesse around all of the depth of fruit. Generous entry, coats the entire palate and lifts off. Seriously long yet so much more to say. It’s okay if you want to drink early or hold for a later date. Enjoy through 2030+.

2017 BEAURENARD RASTEAU
$23.99 BTL./$287.88 CASE

Receiving as much care and attention as their top level Chateauneuf wines, the Coulon family’s Rasteau continues to be one of the finest price/quality wines that we sell. This is the workhorse Rasteau but don’t be fooled, this Rasteau is a steal as it ages stupendously and offers the diversity of soils on the Rasteau terraces.

Superior material present instantly. Upscale aromas. White pepper, pronounced rosemary and Italian plum. Streamlined yet very rich. Lots of licorice on substantial and very drawn-out finish. Alluring and gorgeous, this full-flavored number drinks well now and will do so for another 10-12 years. The Coulons feel that this is their finest Rasteau since the 2010 and that says quite a bit because 2015 and 2016 are outrageously great.
