Domaine Bosquet des Papes Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Tradition 2012




A nice red purple color with shiny highlights. On the nose, this Chateauneuf du Pape spreads aromas of little berries. It has a sweeping silky smooth mouth.

Wine AdvocateBottled in March, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape is ripe, textured and downright sexy wine that has overflowing notes of sweet cherries, raspberry, chocolate and spice all emerging from the glass. This full-bodied, dense, concentrated and layered effort is one of the top efforts in the vintage, and will have upward of two decade of longevity.

Wine SpectatorSolid, with mesquite and singed cedar notes framing a juicy core of steeped raspberry and red currant fruit. Iron, rooibos tea and tobacco accents line the finish. A somewhat old-school version fleshed out by juicy fruit. Best from 2015 through 2025. 1,500 cases made.
