2001 Bois de Boursan "Cuvée des Félix" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1343620 96 points Wine Spectator

 This is always one of the most distinctive wines in the appellation, with garrigue, lavender, smoldering tobacco and roasted chestnut notes driving to the fore, backed by dense layers of roasted fig, mulled currant fruit and hoisin sauce. The long, pebbly, iron-filled finish is simultaneously chewy and racy. (JM, Web-2012)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The noble, elegant, complex 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Felix boasts a deeply pigmented ruby/purple color as well as a classy perfume of graphite, crushed stones, blueberries, acacia flowers, and plums. The outstanding aromas are followed by a wine with vigorous richness, excellent elegance, tremendous precision, and significant flavor authority allied with both power and finesse. This beauty is one of the appellation’s most distinctive offerings. Patience, however, is required. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2018. (RP)  (2/2004)

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.
