Lush, with velvety fig, blackberry and black cherry fruit flavors layered with warm ganache, black licorice and fruitcake notes. Offers a polished feel through the finish, revealing some latent briary grip. Best from 2015 through 2025. 750 cases imported. Score: 92 points -- Wine Spectator, Oct 2014
Full ruby. Spice- and mineral-accented aromas of fresh red berries and candied flowers, with a hint of smokiness coming up slowly. Silky and sweet in the mouth, offering vibrant raspberry and cherry flavors and a touch of spicecake. Smooths out nicely on the finish, which features gentle tannins and an echo of floral pastilles.

- 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.
- We make highly concentrated wines of great finesse, elegance and minerality. This is the true signature and pedigree of the local soils, which makes Beaurenard wines suited to lengthy ageing. They can also be drunk young, to procure an intense, lush pleasure.
