External Reviews for Mas de Boislauzon Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Quet Proprietary Blend Wine
Even better and eclipsing the estate s brilliant 2007 the 2010 Mas de Boislauzon Ch
Glass-staining purple. Heady spice-accented aromas of dark fruit liqueur cola licorice and candied violet. Broad-shouldered and deeply concentrated offering sweet cassis and blueberry flavors that show a distinctly ripe character. Tannins build with air and carry through an impressively long smoky finish that strongly echoes the blueberry and licorice notes. This masculine brawny wine has shaped up very nicely since last year but it will never impress with finesse. 93+ Stephen Tanze
A hefty version carved from a block of baker s chocolate and espresso to reveal extra notes of singed cedar roasted fig steeped black currant licorice root and Black Forest cake. The long muscular finish still has serious grip to shed and will require patient cellaring. Best from 2015 through 2030. -J.M. Wine Spectator.
The single-vineyard wine from a special parcel of old vines and a blend of 65% Grenache and 35% Mourvedre is the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Quet. Opaque ruby/purple this is a brilliant wine and one of the stars of the vintage. Full-bodied with superb purity loads of blackberry and kirsch notes intermix with smoke creosote incense and truffle. Full powerful rich with sweet tannin and good acidity this should be a blockbuster and drink beautifully for at least two decades. Brilliant wines from the northernmost sector of Chateauneuf du Pape emerge from the Chaussy family and in 2006 they have added a third cuvee which looks sensational although somewhat unusual in that it is 100% Mourvedre cuvee aged in demi-muids and barrels.
