Domaine Bois de Boursan Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit gamy on the nose with a big dose of brett that obscures a lot of the bright berry fruit and spice notes. Leather with a barnyard edge that veers closely to the band-aid end of the spectrum though nice notes of kirsch, herb, dried grasses and dried raspberries battle back. Sweetly fruited with a lovely natural brightness and moderate, yet chewy tannins make this very lively in the mouth. Plenty of earthy fruit on the palate with a menthol and tar edge but the brett tamps the fruit down. The tannins are a bit drying and will benefit from some brief cellaring and really pop on the moderately long yet drying finish. 86pts

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

Dense, with an ample core of blackberry and braised fig fruit flavors, layered with roasted herb, humus, maduro tobacco and mineral notes that stretch out the finish. There's lots of character. Should cellar very well. Best from 2010 through 2023. - JM The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Felix has a dark plum/purple color and exhibits a nose of beef blood, incense, resin, blackberry, cassis, and again, plenty of truffle. This wine displays terrific intensity, medium to full body, and beautiful acidity and overall equilibrium. It is a blend of 65% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre, and 5% grapes from other parts of the region. It is still young and broodingly backward, so give it 2-3 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 15 years.

Muscular for the vintage, with roasted game, coffee, bittersweet cocoa, dark currant preserve and tobacco notes. Grippy and dark on the finish, with a flicker of black tea in the background. Best from 2010 through 2020. - JM The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape is an outstanding blend of 65% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre, and 5% the other red grapes of the appellation. With rich, attractive, earthy notes, and plenty of floral and spice box characteristics interwoven with dark, ripe red and black fruits, lavender, and oodles of Provencal typicity, it is full-bodied, fleshy, and already gorgeous to drink, but promises to evolve for at least a decade or more.
