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 »

  • Louis Bernard Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2009

    Snoothrank:

    With an inviting citrus, stone fruit (peach, principally) and chamomile tea nose this southern Rhone wine inveigles one to drink - especially on a hot summer day. More citrus with just a slight viognier-initiated bitterness on the finish, this clean refreshing wine is a steal for the price. Buy by the case and serve with pride as your white se... Read More

  • Louis Bernard Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Looking for a 2009 vintage preview (which Parker rates 93-98 depending on South to North orientation), I picked up this usually highly reliable, inexpensive Louis Bernard. Very little of the usual licorice, smoke or anise; rather more like fresh sweet plum - but muted. Slightly tannic with more plum on the palate. Not very showy but well bal... Read More

  • Perrin "La Vieille Ferme" 2009

    Snoothrank:

    My Rating 83. This wine is a simple wine in the tradition of the southern Rhone Region. A blend of four different wines.The nose is medium berry very long. The taste is light with neither an objectional taste nor a interesting flavour.This is good for a garden party on a hot afternoon. Don't invite a wine lover he midgt not like it.At $ 11 for a...

  • Mon Redon Côtes du Rhone Blanc 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Nose: pears, honey, floral, lime, rich and sweet with an underlying sharp acidity. Palate: Sweet, crispy Japanese pears and honey on the front palate, followed by taut, nervy, minerally acid. Lime, lemon curd. Well balanced, elegant and long on the palate. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Read More
