Winemaker Notes

"Quet" is the original name of the Boislauzon district as it appeared on local maps over 200 years ago.

A blend of two varietals, Grenache and Mourvedre, both nearing the century mark. It has the flavor of black ripe fruits, very concentrated and a complexity (owed to the expression of the varietals and extreme age of the vines with very low yields).

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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...

Wine Spectator
Loaded with raspberry, black currant, tar, cocoa and mineral flavors, this large-scale wine pumps fruit and terroir through a rich, structured finish. Nice second wave of fruit and minerality too. Drink now through 2020.

Mas de Boislauzon is a family-run estate in the southern Rhone focusing on Chateauneuf du Pape. Both white and red Chateauneuf du Pape are grown in addition to a special cuvee, Le Quet, made mostly from very old Grenache vines.

Monique Chaussy runs the property along with her daughter Christine and son, winemaker, Daniel Chaussy. The family represents the sixth generation of wine growers in the area.

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, Chateauneuf-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 Chateauneuf-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 Chateauneuf-du-Pape is white. 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.
