Château Beauchene Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rouge 2005

Member Review by Alexr79:

What a great Chateuaneuf. Velvety smooth and well balanced. Red and black fruit, floral notes, and a hint of smoke on the nose. Red cherry, blackberry, and stawberry, along with some mocha, spice, earth, and oak. Nicely layered. Everything is in harmony

The Bernard family has lived in Orange since the 17th century. Originally « mesnagers » or tenant farmers, the Bernards were to profit from the social upheavals of the French Revolution, buying their first vineyard soon after the conflict in 1794. This vineyard is still present nowadays. Since 1971, Michel Bernard runs, with his wife Dominique, the vineyard which they have developed since and in 2004, their eldest daughter joined the board. Today, Chateau Beauchene has become the hub for the vinification and maturation of all the cuvees from the different vineyards own by the family. 3 appellations are represented amongst our 80 hectares: - Chateauneuf du Pape - Cotes du Rhone Villages - Cotes du Rhone The whole harvest is bottled at the Château Beauchêne.
