(80% grenache and 20% mourvedre): Opaque purple. Powerful aromas of roasted dark fruits, olive, licorice and potpourri. Broad and densely packed, offering ripe blackberry and cassis flavors and a touch of candied flowers. Extremely rich but shows surprising energy on the finish, with the licorice and floral notes echoing. Nothing shy about this wine.

The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Quet (80% tank-aged Grenache and 20% small barrel-aged Mourvedre from 60-year-old vines) is spectacular. Its dense purple color is accompanied by an exquisite bouquet of boysenberries, mulberries, blueberries and other wild mountain blue and black fruits. Possessing great intensity, a full-bodied mouthfeel and superb purity, it is a singular expression of old vine Grenache blended with Mourvedre. The finish lasts for 50+ seconds, and the wine has a skyscraper-like texture as well as a multidimensional set of aromatics and flavors. This brilliant offering is more evolved and forward than either the 2007 or 2010.

This is all lean muscle, with singed mesquite and tobacco notes pushed by dark currant, braised fig, plum reduction and tar flavors that cut a broad swath. Still densely wound through the grippy finish, with a mouthfilling bittersweet cocoa edge that manages to stay polished and fresh. One of the bigger wines in the vintage.

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.
