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 »

  • 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

  • Gabriel Meffre Cotes du Rhone "Saint-vincent" 2012

    Snoothrank:

    This "entry level" white Cotes-du-Rhone from a well-known Gigondas producer hits well above its price-point; I love the white garden flower nose and tisane-like notes (Roussanne) on the palate along with sweet pear. There is a youthful stem acerbity, but some cellaring may offset this feature of the wine. Very impressive for the price! 88 points. Read More
