Tasting Notes and Scores

98

Wine Advocate

A 100% Grenache cuvee from the Gardiole lieu-dit is the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape a la Gloire de Mon Grandpere. With 43 separate parcels spread throughout the appellation, the Boiron family can pick and choose the best, but it must be a strategic nightmare to manage all these different parcels. This 2010 (500 cases produced) includes 50% stems and is aged entirely in demi-muids. Close to perfection, it is the finest example of this cuvee I have tasted since its debut in 1998. Drinking it is like drinking pure kirsch liqueur intermixed with notes of crushed spring flowers. Its superb minerality, density, purity and texture build incrementally in the mouth revealing a blockbuster red with superb elegance, precision and purity. The alcohol must surpass 15%. Drink this spectacular Chateauneuf du Pape over the next 12-15 years. Drink: 2012 - 2027

I have been following the wines of this estate since 1978, when the parents of Nicolas Boiron produced the wines. Nicolas, one of the tallest vignerons in the village, has been in charge for a number of years, and has unquestionably hit pay dirt over recent vintages. While many top-notch wines have emerged from Bosquet des Papes over the last 25 years, I do not think they have ever had a greater vintage than 2010, which has been followed by some of the finest wines of the vintage in 2011. Consumers should be looking out for this domaine’s wines as the quality has soared even higher than it already was. In 34 years of tastings, every time I go back to a wine region I seemingly know extremely well, there are always surprises, both wonderful and disappointing. My recent tasting at Bosquet des Papes ranks as the most remarkable I conducted on my trip to the southern Rhone Valley. For starters, two sleepers of the vintage are the 2011 and 2010 Cotes du Rhones. The Boirons own nearly ten acres of Cotes du Rhone vineyards situated on the other side of Domaine du Marcoux in the northern part of the appellation. Their vines are separated from the Chateauneuf du Pape appellation by a narrow two-lane road. Both Cotes du Rhones are blends of 80% Grenache, 10% Cinsault and 10% Syrah aged in tank. Bosquet des Papes’s 2011 Chateauneuf du Papes are among the great successes of the vintage. Nicolas Boiron told me something I heard from just about every vigneron and oenologist: 2012 was looking perfect. However, as we all remember, so was 2002 until the historic flood hit on September 8 and 9. On September 24, 2011 approximately three inches of rain fell of Chateauneuf du Pape, which will affect the outcome. No 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape a la Gloire de Mon Grandpere was made.

(92-94 pts)
The best example of this cuvee made since it debuted in 1998 is the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape A La Gloire de Mon Grandpere. An overload for the olfactory senses, with striking quantities of kirsch liqueur, underbrush, licorice and raspberries, the wine is full-bodied, unctuously textured, has an opaque bluish purple color (another unusual characteristic of this vintage), and incredible depth as well as a layered mouthfeel. This is a luxurious, even decadent Grenache to drink over the next 15+ years. Drink: 2011 - 2026

The proprietors of a reasonably large estate of nearly 70 acres, with parcels spread throughout Chateauneuf du Pape, the Boiron family has long been a fixture in the appellation, dating at least as far back as the mid-1800s . Nicolas Boiron, who is running the estate now, is certainly a bigger than life character, both literally and figuratively. He is possibly the tallest vigneron in the southern Rhone. His property is a wonderful source of traditional Chateauneuf du Papes that are consistently well-made and among the best-known of the appellation. Their 2009s are all strong efforts, and their 2010s, to my taste, are the greatest wines they have produced since 1990, even eclipsing their success in the sensational vintage of 2007. The 2010s are probably the finest wines Nicolas Boiron has yet made, equal to the success they had in 1990, and eclipsing the wondrous vintage of 2007.
