Coming from 90-year old vines and a blend of 65% Grenache and the rest Mourvèdre and Syrah, the 2003 Domaine Bois de Boursan Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée des Felix has smoking aromatics that just scream Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Smoked cherries, leather, garrigue, dried blood, tar and subtle floral aromas literally jump from the glass and the wine is both complex and intense at the same time. These characteristics carry over to the palate where the wine shows medium to full body, sweet fruit, fresh acidity, firm, dry tannin and a long, lingering finish. The dry tannin on the finish gives me a slight pause with regards to aging but it’s drinking beautifully right now, especially with food. Given how expressive and aromatic this is at the moment, I’d opt for pairing with food and drinking over the next 5 to 8 years.
