Winemaker's Notes

"The limited production, stunning 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Quet reminded me of a grand cru from Burgundy's Cote de Nuits. Notes of forest floor, acacia flowers, black raspberries, and cherries emerge from this deep, pure, full-bodied Chateauneuf that builds slowly but surely in the mouth. This is a tremendously rich, precise, natural expression of old vine Grenache with plenty of tannin underlying the wealth of fruit and glycerin. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2018. Bravo!"
-Wine Advocate 92-95 Points

Critical Acclaim

"A gorgeous expression of old vine Grenache that is at the top of the vintage, the 2003 Mas de Boislauzon Cuvee du Quet is knockout stuff that is incredibly youthful and borderline primary. Offering up classic Chateauneuf du Pape aromas and flavors of black raspberries, kirsch, licorice, roasted garrigue, seaweed and spiced meats, it flows onto the palate with a full-bodied, seamless and beautifully pure texture that has no hard edges, awesome purity and a focused, clean finish. Chewy, rich and voluptuous, yet also pure, precise and long, this top-notch effort will continue to improve..."

As the name suggests, the wine region was named after the new papal home, referring to the period of time in the 1300's when the pope resided in Avignon instead of Rome. Notable Facts...
