2003 Domaine Bois de Boursan "Cuvée des Félix" Chateauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1244695 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2003 Domaine Bois de Boursan Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Felix is superb. Showing a mature, yet still lively and fruit-driven profile of sweet currants, saddle leather, truffle, and garrigue, it stays beautifully rich and seductive on the palate, with layers of sweet fruit, no hard edges and a great finish. Certainly a ripe vintage, yet everything is perfectly proportioned, the tannins are sweet and it is a joy to drink. A blend of 65% Grenache and the balance a mix of Mourvedre and Syrah, from 90-year-old vines, it held up beautifully with air and is a raging success in the vintage. (JD)  (6/2013)

94 points Wine Spectator

 Captivating aromas of hot stones, game and Provençal herbs are followed by a powerhouse palate of black currant, tar, roasted chestnut and bacony toast. Chewy and muscular, this will need cellaring, but has the stuffing and structure to last. Best from 2007 through 2020. 500 cases made. (JM)  (9/2005)

92 points Vinous

 Deep red. Superripe, exotic aromas of kirsch, plum and garrigue; potent-verging-on-overwhelming. Extremely ripe, with dense flavors of sweet cherry and candied rose that build and expand through the finish, which features dusty, fine-grained tannins. The floral notes linger nicely on the back. (JR)  (1/2006)

Rhone Blends



- 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. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.


- 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.
