Bois de Boursan Cuvee Felix Chateauneuf du Pape 2012

Member Review by gudwine4me:

Have always enjoyed this producer. Decided to open this one early to see if I should buy some more. Somewhere it was described as "not for the modern palate" which meant I was going to like it. A bit of a barnyard nose that eventually moderated. Fruit was well balanced and finish was nice and long with only a slight bitterness towards the end. Medium to full bodied. We loved it.

Slightly better, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Felix reminded me of a high class Pomerol. Notes of mulberries, kirsch, figs, damp earth, forest floor and spice box are present in this round, gracious, generous, full-bodied effort. Enjoy it now and over the next 10-15 years. Opaque ruby. Wild, borderline feral and smoky on the nose, which displays scents of cherry, blackberry and sandalwood. Deeply pitched dark fruit flavors show a meaty quality and become sweeter with air. Finishes with serious punch and grip, the cherry and smoke notes echoing. Shows a lot of impressively deep fruit but this wines funky aspects wont be for everyone. ** SOLD OUT **

What we have here is a very traditional, full-bodied Châteauneuf. It's loaded with black fruit, forthright tannin, and raised in large oak vats. There's a good amount of cherry, plum and fresh tobacco fruit on the palate. This is a traditional Châteauneuf that is approachable today.

What we have here is a very traditional, full-bodied, incredible Châteauneuf. Raised in large oak vats, it is loaded with black fruit and forthright tannin. There's a good amount of cherry, plum, and fresh tobacco on the palate. This is perfect if you're looking for a Châteauneuf that isn't merely drinkable today, but truly shines in its youth.

The brilliant 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape offers classic Provencal aromas of garrigue (that roasted herb, windswept smell of Provence), truffles, ground pepper, and kirsch. This full-bodied, rich, fleshy, complex wine is already drinking well. It should... Robert Parker. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2007 Bois de Boursan Chateauneuf du Pape 750ml

This powerful, well structured wine can be consumed within the first years but also has a very good aging potential.
