|2009 Domaine la Barroche Chateauneuf du Pape Signature|
Domaine la Barroche has been in the same family since the 14th. It has 12.5ha of vines in Chateauneuf du Pape, mainly in the north and northeast of the appellation. These include some extraordinary 100 year-old Grenache vines that are the pride of the estate.
Tasting Note: Wine Advocate
Even better is the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Signature, which possesses the densest ruby/purple color of this trio. Expansive, broad notes of blueberries, blackberries, kirsch and garrigue are found in this full-bodied, sexy, opulent, stunning Chateauneuf du Pape. The forwardness and lusciousness of the 2009 vintage is brilliantly well-displayed in this offering. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.
