ABOUT THIS WINE

2019 vintage is in line with the top vintages of the decade. After a nice winter, spring came slowly, when our famous wind “Mistral” helped to keep a healthy environment in the vineyard during the important growing season. The last week of June, Rhône Valley vineyards went through a heat wave with temperatures above 45°C (113 °F). Fortunately, our biodynamic sprays of horn dungs, silicas, chamomiles, nettles and essential oils, combined with good water reserves in soil from 2018, helped the vines to continue their growth in great condition. Thanks to gentle rains in August and September, we were able to pick beautiful, healthy and balanced grapes.

The grapes are hand-picked and sorted in the vineyard. Co-fermentation, long vatting for soft extractions. Matured for 12 months in conical vats, foudres and barrels.

Today, brothers Daniel & Frédéric Coulon and Daniel’s sons Victor and Antonin are dedicated to produce the most essential expressions of this historic region, long sought-after by discerning collectors and enthusiasts around the globe.

In addition to the timeless Domaine de Beaurenard facilities, the Coulon family is developing a range of certified biodynamic wines made from grapes sourced in friends’ vineyards in the Rhône region. “We have seen great potential to develop and expand our activities, and portfolio while keeping our philosophy and values intact,” says Victor. This promising project called BiotifulFOX is led by the new generation and is expanding the Coulons' expertise to exciting new wines.
