Domaine Bois de Boursan Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée des Felix 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

95 points Wine Spectator: This shows the vintage's powerful core of fig, blackberry and mulled currant fruit, but shows extra dimensions of roasted chestnut, maduro tobacco, lavender and iron. The long finish has a hot stone note buried in it. Best from 2012 through 2029. (3/31/10)

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.

The brilliant 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape offers classic Provencal aromas of garrigue (that roasted herb, windswept smell of Provence), truffles, ground pepper, and kirsch.

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.

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

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.
