Domaine Bois de Boursan 2015 'Tradition' Chateauneuf-du-Pape AOC Login WA 91-94 In Stock

Domaine Bois de Boursan, founded in 1955 by Jean Versino (Jean-Paul’s father), is a ten-hectare domaine with the entirety of its vineyards situated within the confines of the village of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Working all of the permitted thirteen grapes for the appellation, the Versino family manages twenty-seven separate parcels of vineyards. The average age of the vines is in excess of fifty years. The domaine is worked organically without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Further, the vinification is traditional to its core: the grapes for the red are not destemmed, the cuvaison extends for at least three weeks and the elevage in wood of varying size and age is eighteen months or longer. The wines, both red and white, are age-worthy.

  • Dom. Bois de Boursan 2015 'Tradition' Chateauneuf-du-Pape AOC
    The Wine Advocate
    Rating: 91-94 ()

    The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape—a blend of 70% Grenache, 10% each Mourvèdre and Syrah, and smaller amounts of other permitted varieties—will spend a full two years in foudres prior to bottling. It's a full-bodied, rich and velvety wine, with layers of dark fruit resembling cola and black cherries and a touch of ground spices on the long finish. It should be a beauty. - Joe Czerwinski
