Natalie's Score: 93/100
Produced by Maurice Et Nicolas Boiron, Prop.-Récolt., this generous and full-bodied Italian red wine offers attractive aromas of dark cherry, berry and spice-infused smoke. Red wines in Châteauneuf-du-Pape are blends of up to 13 grapes, the dominant one being Grenache, then Cinsault, Mourvèdre and Syrah. There is also lesser-known red grapes such as Terret Noir, Muscardin and Counoise as well as white grapes like Clairette Blanche, Bourboulenc, Grenache Blanc, Picardan, Roussanne and Picpoul permitted in the blend, though white grapes are increasingly rarely used, given the preference for the heft and depth that red grapes offer. Try this AC-appellation wine with a hearty meat dish tonight. This Amarone was bottled on March 2014.

Domaine Bosquet Des Papes' 2012 Chateauneuf-Du-Pape displays a beautiful balance of rich sweet fruit and complex savoury notes. At 15% ABV, this is a big wine with huge flavour and great structure. A blend of ~13 grapes, they've mastered the art of blending to achieve such flavor complexity in this stunning wine. Enjoy 2015-2030. Tasted April 2015. 94 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
|David Skinner rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
A deeply hued ruby beauty with a noseful of black cherry, pepper, olives and dark chocolate. Full bodied and richly textured with a fine acid/tannin balance. Flavours of dark berries, licorice and spice with a lengthy finish. Drink on its own or pair with lamb shanks or a wild game bird dish. 75% Grenache and 11% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre a benchmark GSM.
|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
This heavy hitter from the French AC Chateauneuf-du-Pape would love a fine cut of beef to accompany it at dinner. Fresh red berries, black cherry, herbs de Provence, black pepper, licorice aromas and flavours. The tannins are big and there's plenty of ageing potential of up to 10 years. Long length on a warm cherry pie finish. This beautifully crafted CdP would make a great gift.
