Editorial Reviews for Bosquet des Papes Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Tradition
Focused brambly, cherry nose; big, ripe but balanced cherry, kirsch and black fruit palate with brambly notes; medium-plus finish 94 points
60% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 20% Cinsault; aged in oak for 8-10 months. Purple color with aromas of blackberry, oak, and a touch of sweetness. This is a medium- bodied fruity wine with modest tannins and a soft finish. This is a decent, everyday wine (with an alcohol level of 14%) is well-balanced and a good value.
Nice deep color and clear with some sediment. Nose and palate of white pepper, light berry, Anise, clove, chocolate and vanilla. Strong tannins that slowly softened. Had with a rich pork ragu that seemed to help the youthfullness of this wine. Really quite awesome though I'd wait another 3 years or so to pop another. [NR]
External Reviews for Bosquet des Papes Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Tradition
The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape has a dense ruby/purple color and a sweet nose of black cherries, creme de cassis, plums, allspice, and smoky, gamey notes with a hint of damp earth. The wine is ripe, full-bodied, powerful, and moderately tannic. It will probably drink well young but should age nicely for 10ndash;15 years. This superb estate never misses a beat with its wines, which are all reasonably drinkable at a young age, normally exhibit terrific Provencal typicity, and have uncommon aging potential. I still have some soft years like 1983 and 1985 in my cellar that are holding up beautifully.
Medium-bodied, traditional Châteauneuf, displaying good concentration of sweet and ripe flavors on the midpalate, with enticing tobacco and black currant notes on the lingering finish. Not a blockbuster, but a gentle red. Drink now through 2006.
In the traditional vein, with pepper, garrigue, cherry, game, sandalwood and mineral notes that play out against supple tannins and an elegant finish. Drink now through 2017.
Maurice Boiron and his wife run this estate, which has been one of my favorite Châteauneuf-du-Pape estates since the late seventies. The wine has been remarkably consistent. The 1995 Châteauneuf-du-Pape reveals a more purple hue to its color, greater ripeness, and more glycerin, structure, and power. It is a full-bodied, concentrated, powerful Bosquet des Papes that should be the finest regular cuvee made at this esate since 1989 and 1990.
Dark red. Pure raspberry and strawberry on the nose, with a gentle floral element. Suave, silky flavors of fresh red fruits and floral pastilles. A poised, refreshing classique, displaying impressive balance and finishing sweetness.
Dense plum/purple-colored, the 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Classique offers up gorgeous aromas of dried Provencal herbs, cedar, cherry jam, plums, and pepper. Ripe and full-bodied, with outstanding concentration as well as purity, this sexy, layered Chateauneuf will provide enjoyment over the next 12-15 years.
This wine is made in the traditional style, based on 75 percent Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and other rapes. Maurice Boiron took advantage of the great '98 vintage. In addition to this "classic cuvée," Boiron fashioned an uncompromising cuvée from 100 percent Grenache.
