1998 Domaine Bois de Boursan "Cuvée des Felix" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1134633 95 points Wine Spectator

 Still shows a rugged undertow, with grilled herb and braised chestnut flavors, but this has started to soften, and the black currant, fig, coffee, mesquite and incense notes are now beginning to glide through the rich, powerful finish. A wine with a remarkably consistent track record in both style and quality.--1998 Châteauneuf-du-Pape retrospective. Drink now through 2027.  (9/2007)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The brilliant Cuvee des Felix (the debut vintage) is aging beautifully. Dark plum/garnet, with an extraordinary nose of graphite, lavender, blueberry, black raspberry, garrigue, and licorice, the wine offers up an abundant concoction of Provencal scents followed by a full-bodied, opulent mouthfeel that has hit its plateau of maturity. There’s not a hard edge to be found. Full-bodied, even sumptuous, with terrific complexity, it should easily drink well for another 8-10 years.  (6/2010)

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.
