Domaine de Beaurenard Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) In the 14th century, during their stays in Avignon, the popes - and especially Pope John XXII - built a papal castle in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Impressed by the area's exceptional soils, they established vineyards on the slopes surrounding the château and were instrumental in promoting the local wine's reputation around the world. Domaine de Beaurenard in Châteauneuf-du-Pape has been a family-run estate for seven generations.
