96 Domaine de Beaurenard Châteauneuf du Pape Boisrenard 2009 $75
This powerful red offers a muscular core of roasted fig, blackberry and cassis fruit framed by thick, mesquite-tinged tannins; with loads of tobacco, pepper and tar coating the finish. Yet despite its power, this is racy and defined, with mouth-watering cut on the finish, where the mesquite note lingers. Ambitiously toasty, yet fully integrated. On par with the superb 2001 and 2005 vintages. Best from 2014 through 2024. 750 cases made- JM.
