Mas de Boislauzon Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee du Quet 2005
-International Wine Cellar 92-95
"As for their top cuvee, the 2005 Cuvee du Quet (in this vintage 65% Grenache and 35% Mourvedre, much like previous years) exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color, superb purity and intensity, with a full-bodied palate, loads of black fruits intermixed with crushed rocks, flowers, and a bit of licorice and incense. It is a powerful, layered wine of beautiful purity and balance. It will need 2-4 years of bottle age given the tannin profile and fresh acidity; however, the wine should keep for 15 or more years. In the northernmost sector of Chateauneuf, the Chaussy family run this fine estate that has been making brilliant Chateauneuf du Pape for over a decade."

Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
A dark, chewy style, with serious layers of fig, briar, espresso and loam. But this isn't top-heavy, with a beam of blackberry fruit running through the finish and enough well-embedded acidity for length and balance. Impressive. Best from 2008 through 2027.
The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Quet exhibits a dense ruby/purple color to the rim and broad, impressive aromatics of spring flowers, melted licorice, camphor, and blue and black fruits. In the mouth it is layered, powerful, full-bodied, with high tannin, beautiful purity, and a finish that exceeds 45 seconds. This is a knock-out wine. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2025.
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.
