($81) Deep ruby. Sexy, expansive aromas of red and dark berry preserves, smoky herbs, potpourri and exotic apricot; the smoky character reminds me of the northern Rhone. Mineral-driven raspberry and blackcurrant flavors are alluringly sappy and open-knit, with notes of candied flowers and fruitcake adding complexity. This very sexy wine is extremely complex right now.

The biggest surprise in these tastings was the phenomenal performance of the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Quet. Normally a blend of 65% Grenache and 35% Mourvedre, the 2007's composition changed to 80% Grenache (all aged in tank) and 20% Mourvedre (aged in small oak barrels.) This wine literally blew me away. Since this is a PG-rated publication, I can not print my original comments upon tasting this wine. Let's just say the exquisite aromatics were astounding. They include creme de cassis, lavender, roasted meats, new saddle leather, and spice box. The phenomenal aromatics were matched by equally compelling flavors, texture, and purity. Offering a thrill a second, this full-bodied wine exhibits awesome concentration, impeccable balance, and a finish that lasts nearly 60 seconds. I had a difficult time spitting out this amazing elixir, and I kept returning to it during the course of the morning tasting just to confirm my initial impression. The good news is about 500 cases were produced. It should drink well for two decades or more.

This shows a noticeably burly edge, particularly for the vintage, with espresso, roasted chestnut, loam, bittersweet cocoa and licorice root notes wrapped around a core of black currant and braised fig fruit. The dark, muscular finish has lots in reserve.

A superlative effort. This CDP held its own beautifully against strong CA cab competition. I noted succulent red berries bursting with opulence, vanilla bean, and a lush, mouthwatering sensation. A wonderfully cool structure on the palate, with modest tannins that will only improve over the years, and a curiously long finish. Wonderfully balanced and delicious.

About This Producer


Mas de Boislauzon is owned and run by brother and sister Daniel and Christine Chaussy, the sixth generation of family wine growers in the region. The pair produces Chateauneuf du Pape and Cotes du Rhone wines from 25 ha. of AOC vineyards.

Vines are grown on calcareous soils with a high percentage of galets (round stones typical of the region), and vineyards are tended using traditional viticulture techniques. The Chaussy siblings age their wines in both neutral barrels and concrete vats. Red wines are blends of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, and Carignan. White wines are blends of Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Roussanne, and Bourboulenc.
