2004 Mas de Boislauzon "Cuvée du Quet" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1022472 92 points Jeb Dunnuck

 Sporting a classic bouquet, the 2004 Mas de Boislauzon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée du Quet, a blend of 65% Grenache and 35% Mourvedre, oozes kirsch, leather, dried beef, spice box and cocoa dusted rocks aromas on the nose. This beauty is drinking on the upslope, showing medium to full body, a smooth, light texture, sweet fruit and a medium length finish. This shows a touch of dry tannin right on opening but develops beautifully over the evening and should continue to drink well over the next decade.  (9/2010)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 With a rich, dark, medium to full-bodied profile, the 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Quet (75% Grenache and 25% Mourvedre) dishes out loads of chocolate-laced black fruits, plum sauce, licorice and roasted herbs to go with a still youthful, layered and ripe mouth-feel. It will continue to drink nicely for another 5-8 years, easily. An estate that is no doubt at the top of their game today, Mas de Boislauzon is run by the talented brother/sister pair, Daniel and Christine Chaussy. Located in the northern part of the appellation and covering roughly nine hectares, they release up to three red Chateauneuf du Papes and one white. (JD)  (2/2014)

 Deep ruby. Vibrant cherry and red berry aromas, accented by baking spices and cracked pepper. Supple, full and sweet, with a deep cherry liqueur flavor lifted by gentle acidity on the back. Finishes supple, chewy and sweet, with noteworthy length. (JR)  (1/2007)

92 points Wine Spectator

 Very lush, modern style. This almost oozes raspberry ganache and fig paste flavors, with lots of bass thanks to bold, toasty cocoa and mocha notes that dominate for now. But there's a fine minerality buried beneath it all, so cellar. Best from 2007 through 2024. (JM)  (11/2006)

Varietal:

Rhone Blends

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
