Domaine la Barroche Pure Chateauneuf du Pape 2016

Member Review by BigDaddy13:

Had the pleasure of drinking the 2011 vintage at Picholine. Possibly the greatest medium bodied wine I have ever tasted. Perfect mouth feel and fruit notes all around. This had a balance that was perfect and a finish that literally went on for minutes.

Concentrated but remarkably refined, this features a large core of raspberry, red currant and black cherry fruit that is pure, silky and beautifully defined. Hints of shiso leaf, iron and black tea line the finish, which has serious length thanks to finely beaded acidity. A deft marriage of power and grace. Best from 2015 through 2030. 1,900 cases made.

One of the greatest expressions of pure Grenache out there, Barrot’s 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Pure comes from a single plot (near Grand Pierre, Rayas and Pointu) of 100+-year-old Grenache vines that are planted in pure sand soils. While this wine sometimes gets classified as a modern Châteauneuf , the reality is it’s traditional all the way, with only partial destemming, vinification in concrete vats and aging all in foudre. It offers up a smorgasbord of kirsch liqueur, sweet cherries, spice, incense and flowers, and this is followed by a fabulous pure, elegant, yet rich and concentrated effort that has no hard edges, sweet tannin and blockbuster length. It’s one of the stars of the vintage and will thrill for 10–15 years.

Deep ruby. Highly perfumed, vibrant aromas of black raspberry, floral oils, minerals and Asian spices. Juicy, precise and energetic, displaying a suave blend of power and finesse. Packs a serious punch but comes off as lithe. Sharply focused red berry, spicecake and mineral flavors linger on the sappy, persistent finish.

"($70; 60% grenache, 20% mourvedre, 14% syrah and the rest "other ones") Ruby-red. Raspberry and boysenberry aromas are complicated by mocha and anise. Creamy red berry preserve flavors gain weight and richness with air and take a turn to richer blueberry and boysenberry on the back. Rich but energetic, with excellent clarity and florality on the persistent finish." Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar , Jan/Feb 10, Josh Raynolds "More structured, backward, and formidably endowed is the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Tradition. Made from a blend of over 80% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Cinsault, with some very old-vine fruit going into the blend, this wine is also aged in a combination of tank and foudre prior to bottling. Deep plum/ruby-colored with a striking nose of loamy soil scents interwoven with exuberant kirsch liqueur notes, licorice, and roasted Provencal herbs, the wine is backward, dense, full-bodied, and very pure, with a brilliant texture and length. This wine will benefit from another 1-2 years of cellaring and drink well for 15+ years." Wine Advocate , #185 Nov 2009, Robert Parker
