2019 Domaine Bois de Boursan Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Rhone, France (750ml)
Grenache (65%), Syrah (15%), Mourvèdre (15%), Cinsault, Counoise, Vaccarèse, Muscardin, Clairette, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc, Piquepoul, Terret (5%) from 8 parcels ranging from 35 to 110yrs old. 90% whole cluster fermentation in 70% concrete and 30% stainless steel vats. Raised for 24 months in neutral oak foudres.
The classic 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape is a blend of 70% Grenache, 10% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre, and the rest a mix of varieties, raised two years in foudre. Gorgeous and incredibly Provençal notes of ripe cherries, blackberries, new saddle leather, and peppery garrigue give way to a medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced, seamless Châteauneuf du Pape with a wonderful sense of purity and freshness, both good acidity and building tannins, and a great finish. This is pure, traditional, utterly classic Châteauneuf du Pape done brilliantly. Buy a case and enjoy any time over the coming 15+ years.
