DOMAINE BOSQUET DES PAPES

LVT 2018 r 2018 wh 2010 rosé The Tradition red is good value, and STGT. The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape white was a **** STGT wine, too, a relief after some lighter recent vintages. The other red wines are smoothly Grenache-dominated; the Gloire de Grand-Père was a good ****(*) wine when tasted pre-bottling for both 2015 and 2016 (the 2016 STGT), while the old Grenache Chante le Merle (singing blackbird) can really hit the heights: ***** in 2016, when it was an STGT wine, and in 2012. The occasional and expensive Châteauneuf La Folie seems to be slightly surplus to requirements in vintages such as 2015. The Châteauneuf-du-Pape white was a ****(*) wine of character, its blend of interest: 25% Gren blanc, 25% Clairette blanche, 20% Clairette rose, 20% Bourboulenc, 10% Grenache gris. There is also a good, easy drinking Côtes du Rhône red.
