2004 Bois de Boursan "Cuvée Felix" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1271639 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Made by Jean-Paul Versino and the top wine of the estate, the 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Felix is a fantastic effort in the vintage. Smelling like a street market in the south of France with its cured meats, herbes de Provence, saddle leather, earth and sweet core of fruit, it is medium to full-bodied, balanced, textured and has notable structure that emerges with time in the glass. In short, it’s a beautifully made, traditional Chateauneuf du Pape to enjoy over the coming decade. (JD)  (2/2014)

94 points Wine Spectator

 Very solid. This is packed with black currant and fig paste notes pushed by dark, loamy tannins, with notes of grilled herb, iron, black olive, tobacco and mineral. The finish is long and structured. Best from 2009 through 2022. (JM)  (5/2007)

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.
