Bosquet des Papes

Bosquet des Papes has been a family run estate in Chateauneuf for 5 generations; it still maintains a traditional feel even today. The superb vineyards are mainly in the north of the Appellation – in top lieu dits like Pignan, Gardioles, Gardine, and Mont-Redon. The Chante le Merle cuvee is the product of 80-90 year old vines on the famous galets roulets soils; the Tradition, 40-50 year old vines on more diverse terroir. Both are mainly Grenache with a proportion of Syrah and Mourvedre.

Bosquet des Papes Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2017 (6x75cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (91-94)

Leading off the barrel samples, the 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape offers an impressively concentrated, rich, powerful style as well as classic aromatics of scorched earth, black cherries, blackberries, and pepper. It’s an old-school powerhouse done brilliantly.

Bosquet des Papes Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2019 (6x75cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (91-93)

Tasted as a barrel sample, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape from Nicolas Boiron showed beautifully, with lots of classic black raspberry and jammy berry fruits intermixed with plenty of peppery garrigue, new leather, and dried bouquet garni-like aromas and flavors. It’s certainly a classic style of wine, yet it has beautiful fruit, medium to full-bodied richness, notable purity, and a great finish. A no-brainer for the classic Châteauneuf du Pape lovers out there, it’s going to drink well on release and shine for 15 years or more.

Bosquet des Papes Chateauneuf-du-Pape A la Gloire de Mon Grand Pere 2019 (6x75cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (94-96)

Almost all Grenache (there are splashes of Cinsault and Clairette), the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape A La Gloire De Mon Grand-Père was 50% destemmed and brought up in a mix of foudres and demi-muids. It has a riper, sexy bouquet of kirsch liqueur, black raspberries, toasted spices, dried flowers, and sweet Provençal garrigue to go with a full-bodied, beautifully textured, seamless style on the palate. It still has a classic feel, yet there’s certainly more fruit and opulence here compared to the more concentrated, masculine style of the Chante Le Merle cuvée. This beauty is going to drink nicely right out of the gate and cruise for 15-20 years as well.

Bosquet des Papes Chateauneuf-du-Pape Chante Le Merle VV 2017 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (97-99)

I was blown away by the prodigious fruit in the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Chante le Merle Vieilles Vignes. Quantities are only maybe half of the 2016, so you can imagine how concentrated and rich this baby is. Waves of raspberry and cherry fruit are seductive on the nose, then crash over the palate with a tsunami of concentration and power. If time in the cellar can coax some additional elegance out of the wine, it could be a candidate for perfection.

Bosquet des Papes Chateauneuf-du-Pape Chante Le Merle VV 2019 (6x75cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (94-96)

Moving to the old vine cuvée, which is a blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Mourvèdre, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Chante Le Merle Vieilles Vignes reveals a deeper ruby/purple color as well as a richer, slightly more powerful bouquet of blackcurrants, jammy black cherries, roasted garrigue, black licorice, and assorted background notes of spicy meatiness. It’s full-bodied and has a beautiful mid-palate, building tannins, and a great finish. This is another classic yet ripe, pure, and beautifully balanced wine from this estate that will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for 15+ years or more.

Bosquet des Papes Chateauneuf-du-Pape La Folie 2019 (6x75cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (95-97)

The 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape La Folie might not match the magical 2016, but it’s no less a brilliant wine with a subtle modern style in its black raspberry, kirsch liqueur, cassis, peppery garrigue, and spice-driven aromas and flavors. Always the most modern style cuvée in the lineup (it sees a small amount of new oak), it nevertheless never loses its Southern Rhône soul and is full-bodied, flawlessly balanced, with ripe, seamless tannins and a great finish. This wine is roughly 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre that was all destemmed. It should drink well with 2-3 years of bottle age and keep nicely for 15 years or more in cold cellars.
