"Meaty, structured, and one serious Chateauneuf-du-Pape, the 2009 Mas de Boislauzon Cuvee du Quet is locked and loaded, with decadent levels of red and black fruits, melted licorice, truffle, charred meats, and roasted herb-driven aromas that flow to a full-bodied, concentrated, and gorgeously textured palate. Showing the best of the vintage, with ripe, voluptuous fruit, brilliant concentration, and solid underlying structure that stays sweet and fresh, this rock star of a wine should be given another 4-5 years in the cellar, at which point, it will drink beautifully over the following 15+ years. Hat?s off to Christine and Daniel Chaussy for this brilliant effort!" ~JD

"The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Quet (80% tank-aged Grenache and 20% small barrel-aged Mourvedre from 60-year-old vines) is spectacular. Its dense purple color is accompanied by an exquisite bouquet of boysenberries, mulberries, blueberries and other wild mountain blue and black fruits. Possessing great intensity, a full-bodied mouthfeel and superb purity, it is a singular expression of old vine Grenache blended with Mourvedre. The finish lasts for 50+ seconds, and the wine has a skyscraper-like texture as well as a multidimensional set of aromatics and flavors. This brilliant offering is more evolved and forward than either the 2007 or 2010.
This 22-acre estate is on top of its game thanks to the efforts of the brilliant brother and sister team of Daniel and Christine Chaussy, who have been hitting all the high notes for the last 15 or more years. There are three cuvees of red Chateauneuf du Pape, and I would suggest that 2009 and 2010 are the finest back-to-back vintages produced to date (although one can not forget the prodigious 2007s turned out by the Chaussys). The 2010s are brilliant efforts across the board, potentially even better than the 2009s, and certainly more structured with higher acids and more aging potential. Kudos to Daniel and Christine Chaussy, who, by the way, are well-worth visiting should you venture into the northern tier of Chateauneuf du Pape where all their vineyards are located, just south of the ancient Roman town of Orange."
