2007 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Cuvée Félix, Domaine Bois de Boursan

An old vine blend, largely of Grenache, with 25% Mourvèdre from 90 year old vines. As ever with Jean-Paul's wines, there is a dusky fruit quality on the nose, with notes of sous-bois and game. The palate shows wonderfully ripe deep damsony fruit, expansive and vibrant, with a marked spiciness. There is always a complexity here, even in a young wine, with the wild fruit characters of Mourvèdre melding with the generous spiced raspberry fruit of young Grenache. Mourvèdre performed so well in this vintage, adding interest and valuable freshness. Beautifully elegant, traditional Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

2007 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Cuvée Félix, Domaine Bois de Boursan
Domaine Bois de Boursan

The domaine has been in the hands of the Italian Versino family since 1955, with third generation Jean-Paul now at the helm. He takes pride in continuing to create classic, traditional Châteauneuf-du-Pape, with the belief that vinifying with stems and aging the wine for extended periods in large oak foudres gives his wine its unique character. As a result, Bois de Boursan is an exemplary old-school Châteauneuf-du-Pape. There is nothing flashy or opulent here, just wines with great character.
