Domaine Bois de Boursan is one of the few estates who stick to absolutely traditional methods and the wines stand out for their wonderfully classic and typical Chateauneuf-du-Pape aromas. The estate was founded in 1955 by Jean Versino who was Piedmontese by origin. It is run today by his son, the passionate and enthusiastic Jean-Paul Versino. Most of the vines are between 50 to 100 years old divided into 27 plots that are spread all over the Châteauneuf territory. This variety of soils, exposures, subsoils, microclimates makes the three wines produced by the domaineones of the most complex of the appellation. Like in the old times, grapes are not destemmed, aging takes place in old foudres and over extraction is always avoided.

Bois de Boursan is “textbook”, old-school Châteauneuf with flavors and aromas of lavender and notes of kirsh liquor, garrigue and pepper spice. Nothing flashy or opulent, just purity and finesse.
