- 95 points - DOMAINE DE BEAURENARD Châteauneuf-du-Pape Boisrenard 2012 - $80
Offers a grippy feel, taut licorice and tar notes stretching from start to finish. Ripe plum, raspberry and blackberry fruit flavors fill in the core, while hints of anise and juniper hang in the background. The finish reveals a bolt of graphite. Should age very nicely. Best from 2015 through 2030. 125 cases imported. - J.M.
