2005 - Domaine de Beaurenard Chateauneuf-du-Pape
- Drinking Window:

The 2005 Châteauneuf du Pape offers a classic bouquet (dark fruits, spice, licorice, roasted garrigue), but is still surprisingly structured and tannic on the palate. Made from 70% Grenache and 10% each of Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault, this medium-bodied effort has good overall purity and focus, but falls off slightly on the mid-palate, and when all is said and done, its tannin might outlive the fruit. Nevertheless, it’s drinking nicely now and should have no issues holding through 2020.
