    September 13, 2020 - Wow, absolutely stunning.
    Complex and elegant aromatics. Garrigue, smoke, leather, dark fruits, spices, licorice.
    On the palate the tannins are completely resolved, it shows a freshness which is impressive for the vintage. Similar aromatics, ink and mineral, long finish.
    One of the best Boursan I had.

    December 4, 2016 - Paired with a rustic daube along with another 2005. It was great with the food showing way more youthful than Greenblanket expected. Dark red fruit still rides atop garrigue and earth. Years to go, Greenblanket thinks.

    August 29, 2016 - Full body, mature but still deep cherry red color. Elegantly aromatic, ripe black and red fruits, black pepper, leather notes, floral and spicy oak aroma. Black currants, cherry, black olives and peppery on the palate, dark chocolate on very long finish. Rich but still juicy, concentrated and powerful, bold structured, complex and well balanced, gentle acidity, completely integrated tannins. Food friendly, best match is hard cheeses and salads with cheeses as well as meat dishes. Serve 20º - 24º. Open half hour in advance. Completely matured and very enjoyable, drink now and next five/seven years.

    October 3, 2015 - Je me suis collé le nez sur le goulot de la bouteille, pour ne rien manquer des jolis arômes de kirsch et de garrigue qui s'en échappaient .... Étrangement, le nez devient ensuite muet dans le verre, sur les fruits secs. Je n'ai jamais compris ce phénomène.

    La bouche montre la structure du millésime. Ce vin est encore un adolescent, vigoureux, avec des tanins qui commencent à se fondre tranquillement. Comme une dégustation verticale l'avait si bien démontré, le vin de ce domaine peut facilement vieillir une vingtaine d'années sans problème. Il affiche un style traditionnel, assez viril, une certaine austérité. C'est bien structuré, mais je trouve qu'il manque de fruit, comme beaucoup de 2005 dans la région. 87 pts

    May 21, 2015 - Lovely, elegant CdP. Texture is like velvet, layers of flavor, good level of sweetness that's just right, lovely finish, tannins are fully integrated. One bottle left!

    (Bois de Boursan Chateauneuf-du-Pape) This was amazing. A lovely nose of soil components, florality, garrigue, black and green olive and dark cherry and cassis. The palate was big, rich and structured with lovely grippy tanins. A great fruit soak on the finish lingers for what seems like minutes. This has years to go but was great to get s snapshot where this wonderful CDP is right now.
