Since 1860, this domaine has been handed over from father to son by the Boiron family. For five generations, the philosophy of “Bosquet des Papes” estate is to produce laying down wines, meaning that they can be kept for many years, thereby respecting the traditions of Châteauneuf-du-Pape wines. The domaine is now run by Nicolas Boiron and his wife Jeanne-Claire
Most of the wooden vessels in the cellar are foudres but they are using more and more demi-muids maybe by influence of Philippe Cambie.
Cuvée Vieilles Vignes, pretty bright red color with purple reflections. Elegant and complex nose at the same time. Very aromatic, this Châteauneuf du Pape is elegant and long in the mouth. Powerful wine with aging potential for several years.
