Un châteauneuf-du-pape puissant, profond, très aromatique et, surtout, d'une grande élégance. Son potentiel de garde très intéressant vous permettra de l'allier à du gibier ou des mets aux saveurs prononcées et sauvages comme un risotto à la truffe. More info
In the domain, the Châteauneuf-du-Pape wines come from pebbly soil. Here is the proof: Grenache noir, Syrah and Mourvèdre that make up this cuvée come from old vines that are dotted around the clay-clotted soils which have been strewn with pebbles for almost 90 years. They absorb the day's heat to then restore it to the vines at night. Nicolas and Claire-Jeanne Boiron follow a traditional winemaking process in thermo-regulated concrete vats, daily gentle rack and return and pump-over, 35-day barrel fermentation and ageing in barrels and demi-muid barrels for 12 to 18 months. This is therefore an impressive, elegant and aromatic Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Wait many years before drinking with game and other flavoursome dishes.
Domaine Bosquet des Papes has been in the Boiron family since 1860. Situted in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the estate spans 31 hectares. Nicolas Boiron and Claire-Jeanne take great pride in their Châteaneuf-du-Pape grand cru and have recently taken on a big investment project to modernise their techniques while respecting the winemaking tradition. Under their direction, the domain expanded to include 27 ha in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape red appellation, 1.5 ha in the Châteaneuf-du-Pape white appellation and 3.5 hectares of Côtes-du-Rhône red and rosé. Sustainable agriculture marks a respect for the complex terroir composed of the famous “galets roulés” and sandy soil of the region. Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvèdre are the favoured grape varieties.
