Bosquet des Papes Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rhone

Bosquet des Papes Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rhone

€48.95
 
Purple red in colour with some shiny highlights. On the nose, this Châteauneuf du Pape displays aromas of small red berries. It has a sweeping silky smooth mouth feel, a classic southern Rhône spicyness of ground pepper, garrigue, cherry liqueur, plums, and cedar with sweet, expansive, and pure fruit flavours and excellent delineation.

Description

Since 1860 the Boiron family has made wine at the property. Through 5 generations the domain has been handed over from father to son. The 2nd generation Joseph-Victor Boiron (1875-1949) took over in 1890. 
From 1936 he called his domain "Clos Chantemerle". Since 1966 the name has been "Bosquet des Papes". This name was chosen by Maurice Boiron, who has retired. Nicolas Boiron and his wife Jeanne-Claire carry on the family traditions.
The cellars were built in three steps in 1978, 1983 and 1994-95. Nicolas Boiron wants to produce a traditional Chateauneuf du Pape. "The philosophy of "Bosquet des Papes" estate is to produce laying down wines, meaning that they can be kept for many years, thereby respecting the traditions of Chateauneuf-du-Pape wines... They will reach their peak after 6 or 7 years." Most of the wooden vessels in the cellar are foudres but they are using more and more demi-muids maybe by influence of Philippe Cambie.
