2018 Domaine La Barroche Chateauneuf-Du-Pape Julien Barrot
62% Grenache, 18% Mourvedre, 12% Syrah, 6% Cinsault and 1% Vaccarese and 1% other varieties. De-stemmed, macerated on skins for more than 4 weeks and fermented in concrete tanks. The Grenache is then aged for 18 months in large oak foudres and blended with the other varieties before bottling. Unfined and unfiltered.
The base cuvée from the young, passionate (and incredibly talented) Julien Barrot … Partially destemmed and brought up in a mix of foudres, demi-muids, and a small portion in stainless steel, it has a great nose of red and black raspberries, framboise, spring flowers, and peppery garrigue. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, it displays a notable sense of elegance and purity, light yet present tannins, and a great finish, all making for a terrific base cuvée.
