November 2018

January 2019

The Beaurenard Blanc is a blend of 30% Clairette, 20% Grenache Blanc, 25% Bourboulenc, 22% Roussane and small amounts of Picpoul and Picardan. It begins with a wonderful perfumed nose, delivering aromas of ripe apple, white peach, crushed almond, and honeysuckle. Beautiful balance and structure with flavors of fresh stone and orchard fruits and a touch of honey on the delicious finish. This gorgeous wine shoud show its best over the next 8-10 years.

August 2018

A blend of 30% Clairette, 25% Bourboulenc, 22% Roussanne, 20% Grenache Blanc, 2% Picpoul Blanc and 1% Picardan, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc is a medium to full-bodied wine with plenty of floral notes up front, pear and melon on the mid-palate and lime and anise on the finish. It's a solid offering that won't disappoint, provided you drink it in its first few years.
