Tasting Notes


ABV:
15 %

Notes

Intense and heady but utterly glorious. Powerful, long flavours carried across the palate by a heavenly smooth and silky texture, bright salt infused griotte and kirsch flavours, hints of damson, strawberry sloe and juniper. Opulent and slick but sufficiently fresh. 100% Grenache from a single vineyard of 100 years old planted on sandy soils.

Notes
Opaque purple. An intensely perfumed nose offers a bouquet of dark fruit preserves, cherry-cola and cassis, with exotic floral and spice notes. Pliant raspberry and cherry flavors possess superb depth and alluring sweetness, with juicy acidity adding lift. Becomes spicier with air and finishes with outstanding power, breadth and smooth, harmonious tannins. Wonderfully rich and energetic.

Domaine La Barroche

Domaine La Barroche

Julien Barrot, of Domaine la Barroche, is one of the young, emerging talents of the southern Rhône. After Julien completed his winemaking course in Montpellier he backpacked around the vineyards of France and Australia, thirsty for knowledge and eager to expand his experiences. He came back and joined his father in 2002, more convinced than ever of the importance of terroir. Julien's enthusiasm and passion rubbed off on his father and together they agreed to release the first Domaine-bottled wines in the 2003 vintage. For thirty years previously Julien's father Christian had been working the vineyards and making wine but selling it off in bulk to local merchants. Though Christian is still around to lend advice, he entrusted the entire Domaine to Julien as of the 2006 vintage. The estate is small, encompassing 12 ha, and is planted to the traditional varieties including Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah, Cinsault, Terret Noir and Clairette. The average age of the vines is 60 years old and one third of the vineyard is more than 100 years old (Grenache.) Their holdings are in some of Châteauneuf’s most hallowed ground, most notably those at the junction of the sandy Rayas, Pointu and Grand Pierre sectors. Grapes are hand picked, wines are fermented in concrete vat and aged in a mixture of large old wooden foudres and smaller oak barrels. The wine is handled gently, everything is done by gravity, and extractions are gentle. This has rapidly become a stellar Domaine.
