About the Winery: Daniel and Christine CHAUSSY, brother and sister working together, are the 5th generation (following on from their mother) to run Mas de Boislauzon. They are always looking to make improvements while respecting tradition and the vines. The domaine is in the north of the Chateauneuf du Pape appellation: it takes in 10 hectares (23 acres) in Chateauneuf du Pape and 18 hectares (40 acres) in Cotes du Rhone Villages, split up into 30 parcels. These plots have clay-limestone soils covered with large pebbles, including the ones it the Cotes du Rhone Villages appellation wich border the Chateauneuf du Pape zone. Daniel follows the principles of sustainable grape-farming, favoring tilling the soil, de-budding, green-harvesting, leaf-removal and letting the weeds grow. Picking is done by hand with very fussy bunch-sorting for both the estate’s appellations.
About the Wine: Manual harvesting, sorting on the plot. No stems, no yeast. Traditional vinification with temperature control. Wine aging in a tank. "Les deux Chênes", meaning "The Two Oaks", is an image that appears on all Mas de Boislauzon packaging is a sketch of the two oaks trees on the property that mark the actual border limits of the Côtes du Rhône Villages and Châteauneuf du Pape appellations. When poured, notes of herbs, spice and earthiness are well accompanied by black fruits and licorice. The texture on this wine leaves you wanting more; the medium-bodied juice has a chewiness to it, that is mouth-filling and with with firm structure yet not overwhelming. Flavors of truffle, dark fruits, and peppery herbs intertwine themselves throughout until an everlasting finish. This wine over delivers vintage after vintage! 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre, 5% Carignan
