Winemaker Notes

A deep, brilliant cherry red color. Powerful and elegant, marked by complex aromas associated with scents of ripe stone fruit (cherry), and fresh fruit (blackcurrant), along with nuances of licorice. The immediate impression is rounded and rich, with flavors of crisp fruit (cherry, strawberry), heightened by notes of pepper and liorice. The final impression is smooth and mellow.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The straight 2012 Cairanne (50% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 20% Mourvedre and 10% Carignan) is a beautiful looking tank sample. Its vibrant purple color is followed by a great bouquet of sweet blackberry, currant, ground pepper and wild herbs. This is followed by a rich, medium+ bodied Cairanne that has fantastic purity, not hard edges and superb freshness.
Range: 89-91

Domaine Boisson Winery Image
The historic roots of this property go back to the mid-nineteenth century, when the great, great grandfather of the present owner, Régis, bought land including a small stone cottage. At that time the cultivation was varied and included cereals, olive trees, vines, a meadow and a garden. After the Second World War René Boisson (lien), father of Régis, and grandfather of Bruno, developed the estate. After the olive trees froze during the terrible winter of 1956, he decided to replace them with vines. At that time, he also bought a wood of 10 hectares at Largarde-Paréol for cultivation. In 1957 René Boisson established his own wine production and left the Cave Cooperative of Cairanne.

The advent of tractors enabled his son Régis to enlarge the property. The first bottle carrying the Domaine Boisson label appeared in 1986. Régis Boisson (lien) (son of René) and his son Bruno (lien), through their own training and experience brought a new vision to the wine production. The vinification is also supervised by Philippe Cambie (a oenologist from Chateauneuf-du-Pape).

An appellation full of some of the most delightful and particularly charming reds, Côtes du Rhône Villages includes the best villages of the greater Côtes du Rhône appellation. The possibility for an appellation promotion exists for every named village but each has to achieve and prove superior quality before an upgrade will be granted. The main ones today are Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Beaumes-de-Venise, Vinsobres, Rasteau and Cairanne.

The Gigondas appellation, while sometimes producing wines with a touch of rusticity, can often rival Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Its elevations are higher and soils richer in limestone. Vacqueyras reds are more concentrated than the more general Côtes du Rhône reds and must be at least one half comprised of Grenache by law. Beaumes de Venise also includes some excellent higher elevation spots for making snappy, fruity and spicy reds but historically the appellation’s esteem came from its fragrant, sweet and golden Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise.

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.
