Bourboulenc

Bourboulenc is a white wine grape variety found mostly in the French regions of Southern Rhône, Provence and Languedoc. It's prone to rot, ripens rather late, and generates tight clusters of jumbo grapes. Strong, smoky citrus, floral, and herbal notes dominate the palate, but the right level of ripeness must be achieved in order for this to happen. Bourboulenc is a high yield grape. It is high acid and low alcohol. Most of the time, Bourboulenc is used as a blending grape and is often paired with Roussanne and Grenache Blanc. You can find Bourboulenc from the following French regions: Châteauneuf-du-Pape AOC, Côtes du Ventoux AOC, Lirac AOC, Tavel AOC, Vacqueyras AOC, Côtes du Rhône, Côtes du Rhône-Villages AOC, Bandol AOC, Cassis AOC, and Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence AOC. It is a dominant grape variety in La Clape/Coteaux du Languedoc. Bourboulenc is an extremely old grape variety that is thought to have originated in Greece, where it is known as Asprokondoura Read more »

  • Chateau la Liquiere Cistus Faugeres Blanc 2015

    Snoothrank:

    The Cistus (which is named for a white, perfumed Mediterranean flower) Faugeres Blanc is a wild, spicy, perfume bomb - smelling of hot, white subtropical flowers; on the palate, there is a spicy, hot cinnamon (the Vermetino effect) finish which would diminish with some aging, but the wine is satisfying and tasty with orange peel and tropical fr...

  • Domaine de Ferrand Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Layers of nuanced red and dark fruits, cherry and plum with a little dusty earth thrown. Gentle tannins and well balanced acidity allow the elegance of this grenache driven wine to shine. 92 points - drink or hold - Paul Read More

  • Michel Gassier Costieres de Nimes Nostre Pais Blanc 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Lemon meringue, peach and green apple aromas, somewhat simple but pronounced and pleasant. This has a tart, round and creamy palate of grapefruit, lemon and pear with restrained oak spice and zesty acidity yielding to dried herb towards the finish and a slow fading warmth. Read More

  • Gabriel Meffre Cotes du Rhone "Saint Vincent" 2014

    Snoothrank:

    The 2014 edition of "Saint Vincent" is delicious - much like the previous 2 editions - and affordable by almost everyone. The elegant, pear, tisane and gooseberry flavours are clean, pure and without edge - surprising at this price point. Though intended for immediate consumption, due to the Roussane component could last 2 more years in bottle... Read More
