2010 Domaine Bois de Boursan Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape is dark plum/purple, with silky tannins, abundant black currant and sweet cherry fruit with hints of mulberries, lavender and licorice. It is perfumed, full-bodied, rich and appealing. Drink it over the next 10-12 years.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Full ruby. Ripe red fruits on the nose and palate, with slow-mounting spiciness and florality adding complexity. Fleshy and open-knit, with very good back-end lift and power. Finishes on a spicy note, with silky tannins lending shape and grip.
70% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, 10% other varieties. 100% spends 22 months in foudre. 36,000 bottles. Very fruity and luscious on the nose. Quite gassy, light and flirtatious. Fine tannins on the very end. Easy peasy.
