  • Goedhuis, September 2009

    It was a toss up to determine which Châteauneuf du Pape from our growers to include as they are ALL incredible. But we had to pick one, and we just love Jean-Paul Versino. He makes wines in a style that gave Châteauneuf its original sought after reputation. The 2007 is a 'tour de force' for straight Châteauneuf du Pape. Parker described this wine as "a beauty" and "a best buy".

  • Goedhuis, November 2008

    Aromas of sweet leather, blackberries and brown sugar make it easy to delve into this 2007. Its wonderfully ripe palate adds succulent sweetness and fine, chewy tannins. It finishes on dark chocolate but also a bit of freshness. Admirably balanced, this should make for fabulous drinking.

  • Robert Parker, October 2008, Score: 90-93

    The traditional 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape displays delicious resiny, lavender, garrigue, and kirsch notes, loads of red fruits, deep, medium to full-bodied flavors, silky tannins, and outstanding purity and length. It is a blend of 65% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre, and 5% the other red grapes of the appellation. This is a beauty and no doubt the best buy among this trio of offerings. It should drink well for 12-15 years.

Jean-Paul Versino is the magic behind this domaine (which is also known as Bois de Boursan). Stemming from third generation Piedmonteses in Châteauneuf du Pape, the Versino family bought 40-100+ year old vines from retiring owners in the mid-80s after years of making wines from rented vineyards.

Jean-Paul Versino is the magic behind this domaine (which is also known as Bois de Boursan). Stemming from third generation Piedmonteses in Châteauneuf du Pape, the Versino family bought 40-100+ year old vines from retiring owners in the mid-80s after years of making wines from rented vineyards. As a result, their vineyards resemble something of a patchwork quilt, comprising 27 different parcels with various soils and microclimates. With all the subtle nuances that are innate to each plot, Jean-Paul has become an expert on harvesting schedules making sure that each variety is at its utmost ripeness when picked. He makes two Châteauneuf du Pape reds - Bois de Boursan and in top years, Cuvée Félix, a special bottling made from the best parcels and the oldest vines, which includes a larger percentage of Mourvèdre. In order to make the most concentrated and complex wines possible, he sells off the wines made from the younger vines and those not "typical" of his style. Unusual for the area, he uses stems in all of his vinifications, which he believes adds several extra benefits including better ageing potential. As paradoxical as it may sound, they also seem to give his wines a notable elegance separating them from the more brawny examples of the region. An excellent domaine for traditionally styled Châteauneuf.Read less

Region

Châteauneuf du Pape

The emperor of southern Rhône appellations, Châteauneuf du Pape was the first A.O.C. in all of France, created in 1936. Their bottle is unique embossed with the papal coat of arms. Thirteen varieties (14 if Grenache Blanc is counted separately) can be incorporated in the blend. The reds include: Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Carignan, Cinsault, Terret Noir, Picpoul, Vaccarèse, Counoise, Muscardin, while the whites are Roussanne, Bourboulenc and Clairette. Only a handful of producers use all 13, Grenache often being the highest percentage of the blend. This enables each producer to highlight the varieties that are the ripest and most interesting in any given year. Most Châteauneuf du Pâpes are master examples of wines that can be approachable within the first few years of release yet able to develop superb complexity during many years of cellaring.
