2012 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Cuvée Félix, Domaine Bois de Boursan

"As is common, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Felix (65% Grenache, 25% Mourvedre, 5% Syrah and the balance a mix of varieties) is both richer and more concentrated than the base cuvee. Showing traditional aromas of wild herbs, blackberry, black cherry, dried garrigue and hints of leather, this medium to full-bodied, concentrated effort has a solid mid-palate, good tannin and plenty of length on the finish. Give it a couple years and drink it through 2027."

2012 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.
