Jean Paul Versino

Jean Paul Versino

Also known as Bois du Boursan, this Domaine has an energetic young winemaker in Jean-Paul Versino who speaks with a contagious enthusiasm about his work. Gifted with some old Grenache and Mourvedre vines (between 50 and 100 years old!) he crafts a deep, damson and spice-packed Châteauneuf. The yields are low (28-30 hl/ha) and the winemaking is traditional. Whole bunch fermantation is employed, only wild yeasts are used and C02 is largely used in place of sulphur during ageing in large old oak wooden foudres. His vast, concentrated premier blend, Cuvée Felix, receives further maturation in two-year-old 225 litre barriques and contains usually up to 25% of old vine Mourvedre. The wines are intense thanks to the low yields , show bags of complex spice character but also boast wonderfully vivid fruit.
