Domaine Bois de Boursan 2017 'Tradition' Chateauneuf-du-Pape AOC Login JD 92 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 2017 'Tradition' Chateauneuf-du-Pape AOC

    Starting with the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape from Jean-Paul Versino, this is another one of those "Provence in a glass" wines that offers loads of character in its kirsch, mulled blackberries, new saddle leather, gamey meats, lavender, and spice-driven aromas and flavors. These all carry to a medium to full-bodied, incredibly elegant Châteauneuf du Pape with terrific overall balance, silky tannins, and a great finish. It’s not the biggest, richest version of this cuvée, but it shines for its incredible complexity and character as well as its balance. It’s going to drink brilliantly for 10-15 years or more. The blend is 70% Grenache, 10% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre, and the balance a mix of permitted varieties.
