Domaine de Beaurenard Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Boisrenard 2014
|Brand||Domaine de Beaurenard|
Wine SpectatorA fleshy and layered red, with gorgeous spice cake, melted licorice, singed alder and warm espresso notes leading the way for a core of steeped blueberry, raspberry and plum fruit. Everything pulls together, with velvet-coated grip extending the finish. Best from 2019 through 2029. 500 cases made. -JM
Wine AdvocateA true gem in this difficult vintage is the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Boisrenard, which offers medium-bodied richness and solid mid-palate depth to go with pure, complex notes of black cherries, blackberries, toasted spices, leather and bouquet garni. For a vintage that yielded mostly mid-weight, charming wines, this has real depth and length on the finish. It too will drink beautifully through at least 2024.
