Domaine de Beaurenard
has been a family-owned estate in Châteauneuf-du-Pape in the Rhône Valley for 7 generations. A notarial deed dated 16 December 1695 mentions "Bois Renard," which has become "Beaurenard" over time. The Coulon brothers, Daniel and Frédéric, have taken over the domaine from their parents, Paul and Régine, and are intent on perpetuating the family tradition. Domaine de Beaurenard
covers 32 hectares of vineyards in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and 25 hectares in the Côtes du Rhône Villages Rasteau.
The terroir of Châteauneuf-du-Pape is unique; here the famous, large sun-heated stones diffuse a gentle heat into the soil, helping the grapes to achieve maturity and concentration. Domaine de Beaurenard is home to the "symphony of 13 varietals", typical of the appellation, creating aromatic complexity, power and balance in the wines. 4 main varieties dominate for the red wines: Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault, complemented by Counoise, Muscardin, Terret Noir and Vaccarèse. The whites are made from the white varieties of Clairette, Roussanne, Bourboulenc, Grenache Blanc, Picardan and Picpoul. The average age of Domaine de Beaurenard’s vines is about 45 years with a yield, in Châteauneuf, ranging from 25 to 35 hl/ha.
