Dom La Barroche Chateauneuf Du Pape Signature 2015 Product #32749 (In Stock)
Dom La Barroche Chateauneuf Du Pape Signature 2015 Dom La Barroche Chateauneuf Du Pape Signature 2015

This is what Chateauneuf du Pape is supposed to taste like!  When you tip the glass, a rush of raspberry, black cherry, and that blend of lavender and sappy herbs the French call garrigue pretty much smacks you in the nose.  Then those scents turn into bold, rich, super-deep, flavors that fill up your mouth with full-bodied joy – but somehow never get heavy or hot.  And, at the end, this silky, spicy, wine leaves you with cracked pepper, herb, and sweet fruit and tannins ready to stand up to grilled lamb or a seven years or so in cellar.

"The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape from the young Julien Barrot is a perfumed, elegant release that's loaded with notions of currants, kirsch, licorice, and spice. It's silky, elegant, ethereally textured and long, with the freshness and classic style of the vintage. As usual, the classic cuvée is a blend of roughly 60% Grenache, 18% Mourvèdre and the balance Clairette Rose, Cinsault, Syrah, and Vaccarèse."  JebDunnuck.com 92 points

"Fermented in concrete eggs and aged in foudres and stainless steel tanks. Vivid ruby. Highly expressive cherry and black raspberry aromas are complicated by energetic floral and Asian spice nuances. Sappy, sweet and broad in the mouth, offering juicy, densely packed red and dark berry flavors that become deeper as the wine open up. Stains the palate and shows impressive vivacity on the persistent, floral-dominated finish, which is framed by silky, harmonious tannins."  Vinous (Raynolds) 91-93 points

Dom La Barroche Chateauneuf Du Pape Pure 2015 Product #32157 (In Stock)
Dom La Barroche Chateauneuf Du Pape Pure 2015 Dom La Barroche Chateauneuf Du Pape Pure 2015

As Jeb Dunnuck says of Pure, “There are only 250 cases produced and it’s year in, year out, one of the greatest Grenache’s made in the world.”  The vine comes from a single, tiny, plot of sandy-soiled vineyard abutting Ch Rayas (one of the region’s greatest and most expensive wines).  Planted by current winemaker Julien Barrot’s grandfather, the vines are now about 115 years old, yielding a tiny crop of amazingly concentrated and intense Grenache fruit.  Julien picks them by hand, ferments the crushed berries in concrete eggs, and then ages the wine in a single, large, very old, Fench oak foudre.  An astonishingly elegant and…well, Pure…take on the Southern Rhone’s most important grape.

"A complex, highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh dark berries, cola, incense and potpourri, and a hint of smoky minerality emerges with air. Juicy, penetrating black raspberry, bitter cherry and lavender pastille flavors show superb depth and energy and stretch out to become sweeter on the back half. Shows excellent clarity and spicy lift on a long, sappy finish framed by velvety, slow-building tannins. For such a generous wine, there's no lack of vivacity here."  Vinous (Raynolds) 93-95 points

"Offering more kirsch liqueur, lavender, incense and sweet spice, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Pure is another gorgeous, balanced, seamless beauty. Fine tannin, full-bodied richness, and solid freshness all develop in the glass, and it has a great finish. Like the traditional cuvée, it's elegant, long, and will keep for 15+ years. This cuvée is always from the same parcel located at the intersection of the le Grand Pierre, le Pointu and Rayas lieux-dits, is fermented all in concrete and spends 18 months in a single foudre. There are only 250 cases produced and it’s year in, year out, one of the greatest Grenache’s made in the world."  JebDunnuck.com 95 points

"One of the most impressive barrel samples of this cuvée I can remember, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Pure is always almost 100% Grenache that comes from a tiny parcel of sandy soils located right at the junction of the Grand Pierre, Pointu and Rayas lieux-dits. Partially destemmed, vinified in concrete and aged in a single, ancient foudre, this sensational-looking Châteauneuf du Pape dishes out incredible amounts of ripe cherries, blueberries, crushed rocks and crushed flowers. Big, full-bodied, thick and unctuous, it got a few expletives in the notes, and for all its size and weight, it stays lively, pure and even elegant. My money is on this beauty being one of the top wines in the vintage."Wine Advocate 95-97 points

When Robert Parker tasted the 2005 Pure  - just the third vintage for then 25 year-old Julien Barrot – he was blown away, calling it “magnificent 100% old vine Grenache offering called Pure, which is about as close to a great vintage of Rayas as one will find.”  That Rayas comparison comes up often, and while this is hardly inexpensive, compared to Rayas…  Well worth having to drink from 2020 on.

"Most of these vines are now over 115 years old; fermented in large concrete eggs and aged in a large older foudre. Lurid ruby. A complex, highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh dark berries, cola, incense and potpourri, and a hint of smoky minerality emerges with air. Juicy, penetrating black raspberry, bitter cherry and lavender pastille flavors show superb depth and energy and stretch out to become sweeter on the back half. Shows excellent clarity and spicy lift on a long, sappy finish framed by velvety, slow-building tannins. For such a generous wine, there's no lack of vivacity here."  Vinous (Raynolds) 93-95 points
