Winemaker Notes

It is a structured and powerful wine with notes of black fruits, licorice and cocoa.

Pairs well with game and spicy dishes.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 96
Wine Spectator
This is always one of the most distinctive wines in the appellation, with garrigue, lavender, smoldering tobacco and roasted chestnut notes driving to the fore, backed by dense layers of roasted fig, mulled currant fruit and hoisin sauce. The long, pebbly, iron-filled finish is simultaneously chewy and racy.—2001 Châteauneuf-du-Pape non-blind retrospective (November 2011). Drink now through 2021.
RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The noble, elegant, complex 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Felix boasts a deeply pigmented ruby/purple color as well as a classy perfume of graphite, crushed stones, blueberries, acacia flowers, and plums. The outstanding aromas are followed by a wine with vigorous richness, excellent elegance, tremendous precision, and significant flavor authority allied with both power and finesse. This beauty is one of the appellation’s most distinctive offerings. Patience, however, is required. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2018.

Domaine Bois de Boursan, France
The 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 Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Working all of the permitted thirteen cepages 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 ageworthy.

Famous for its full-bodied, seductive and spicy reds with flavor and aroma characteristics reminiscent of black cherry, baked raspberry, garrigue, olive tapenade, lavender and baking spice, Châteauneuf-du-Pape is the leading sub-appellation of the southern Rhône River Valley. Large pebbles resembling river rocks, called "galets" in French, dominate most of the terrain. The stones hold heat and reflect it back up to the low-lying gobelet-trained vines. Though the galets are typical, they are not prominent in every vineyard. Chateau Rayas is the most obvious deviation with very sandy soil.

According to law, eighteen grape varieties are allowed in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and most wines are blends of some mix of these. For reds, Grenache is the star player with Mourvedre and Syrah coming typically second. Others used include Cinsault, Counoise and occasionally Muscardin, Vaccarèse, Picquepoul Noir and Terret Noir.

Only about 6-7% of wine from Châteauneuf-du-Pape is white wine. Blends and single-varietal bottlings are typically based on the soft and floral Grenache Blanc but Clairette, Bourboulenc and Roussanne are grown with some significance.

The wine of Chateauneuf-du-Pape takes its name from the relocation of the papal court to Avignon. The lore says that after moving in 1309, Pope Clément V (after whom Chateau Pape-Clément in Pessac-Léognan is named) ordered that vines were planted. But it was actually his successor, John XXII, who established the vineyards. The name however, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, translated as "the pope's new castle," didn’t really stick until the 19th century.

With bold fruit flavors and accents of sweet spice, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre form the base of the classic Rhône Red Blend, while Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise often come in to play. Though they originated from France’s southern Rhône Valley, with some creative interpretation, Rhône blends have also become popular in other countries. Somm Secret—Putting their own local spin on the Rhône Red Blend, those from Priorat often include Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah make an appearance.
