2010 Bosquet des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape A la Gloire de mon Grand-Père

Grenache more

What a great wine already! Beautiful and lush bouquet with ripe dark fruits and beautiful spiciness. On the palate soft and sweet, but also beautiful acidity and tannin. All in a perfect balance. Some chocolate as well. A very complete wine. Delicious already and this wine certainly has the potential still being great in the 2020's. 98 for tonight.

Beautifully ripe and sweet fruits and soft garrigue in the bouquet. On the palate ripe fruits as well, herbs and spices like pepper and a firm amount of acidity. Needs a few years to show what it has in store. Try around 2016. 90++ for today

Dense, powerful nose with spice and dark chocolate; amazing concentration on the palate, thickly fruited. Dense, powerful wine. Ageworthy - very impressive.

Gorgeous sophisticated port-like bouquet leads to a sharply bifurcated wine of over-ripe fruit and lingering, bitter tannins with traditional Rhone accents. I hope this will come together with time.

As before. Lots of slightly spiced raisin and liquorice. The palate is fine and refreshing, the juicy acidity coming with a powerful slab of fruit.

Pretty good without being exceptional, this is approaching full maturity with tertiary notes of garrigue and underbrush combined with dried red fruit. 13.5% alcohol so not heavy, neither clumsy, just a little boring perhaps.

Nose is mostly raspberry and kirsch for me. The palate, though, is really interesting; a combination of cherry liqueur, blood, and tart acids. It's the sanguine flavor that really get me -- I'm a fan. But I could use a little more of a counterpoint to the fruit and tart. Still -- a wine worth watching, and I am glad that Bosquet is on my radar.

Another poor showing of this wine at a tasting, this time properly flawed with unpleasant barnyard notes on the nose - sweet, maderised. Very sweet and equally unpleasant on the palate.

Magnum night with the neighbors (Somewhere on E. 4th street): From Magnum, this is young still but a nice showing. The nose has raspberries, some earthy funk, spice and slight floral notes. On the palate, this is not real ripe which works for it especially so young and at dinner. Nice black raspberry fruit. juicy acidity. Some complexity. A few years at least from peak of course, but drinking well today. A nice addition.

Återigen, ett riktigt bra vin med fin mognad. Troligen på topp nu pch ett tag framöver. Fortfarande taniner kvar som bär upp frukten exemplariskt. Mer lakrits och djup i smaken än jag noterat tidigare.
Prisvärdheten är verkligen 100%

Bandaid on the nose. On the palate, muted raspberry with notes of iodine, white pepper, anise, and orange peel on the medium finish. This is distinctively from Chateauneuf, but there is surprisingly little fruit in evidence, although many pleasant earthy notes come through strongly. No flaws, and it's perfectly enjoyable, but it falls a bit short of what I usually look for in a Chateauneuf.

No decant..warm & spicy, ready now but will keep. I find the '07s can be a bit "jammy" right now and think they benefit from being served a degree or so cooler than usual. .very enjoyable though..

Still young and feels like on the palate. The taste is cherries, peppar, tar, red berries, and strong spicy finish. A lot of heat in this bottle. Might be worth waiting.

Very much in the same Style as the Chante le Merle 07, but with less sweetness and more focus on the palate. Nose is more or less identical though. Raisins, something perfumed, meat, lots of oak, milk chocolate and coffee. Medium(-) acidity, round with no real tannins. High intensity, long, long finish with noticeable warmth.

Good focus and less flabby than the previous 07's, guess the 20% Mourvedre helps! :)

Extremely ripe fruit on the nose, with some raisins and tons of dark fruit. Blackberries, plums and morello cherries. Perfumed spiciness, something slightly green and lots of oak.

Medium(-) acidity, sweetish fruit, full bodied, high intensity, long finish. Distinct alcoholic warmth. This is bombastic to the max. Not a big fan though, and I'm really missing all the CdP funkyness! This is way to clean! :)

This is completely over the top alcohol-wise. Nose is more or less only fruit, dark fruit. Some roasted oak, meat and raisins. Medium acidity, slightly more dry than the Tradition 07. Full bodied, with high intensity but with a warm, alcohol infused finish. No elegance nor balance here at all. This is mostly just vulgar. The only thing that stopped me from guessing Amarone was the lack of VA on the nose.

Wonderful, enticing nose! Slightly developed with some raisins, tar, smoke, vegetables, meat, stable floor, rubber, wood, and something slightly green. Medium(-) acidity, sweet fruit, medium+ intensity, medium+ body, a long, almost saline finish. Great balance!

Placed this as the best wine of the flight, before more or less the rest of Bosquets des Papes whole 2007 line up! This is definitely in a good spot right now, and even though I don't expect this to fall over any time soon, there is no need to wait.

I agree with the three previous reviews written here. Aerated and decanted for an hour before drinking over a two hour period. Seemed a bit closed at first but it continued opening up throughout the evening, right down to the last sip.

The dominant tone of this wine is spice, although there is some dark red fruit in there as well. The spicy aspect isn't just black pepper. Amanda thought perhaps cardamom however I couldn't quite put my finger on it. In any case, very enjoyable. I would decant this one at least 3 hours in advance next time around.

Starts out with dark cherries and soft tannins - opens up in decanter and glass to a harsher, more vivid taste with leather, violets, liquorice, fresh black pepper. Enjoyable but not overly exciting; will probably not get better than this with time.
