Barroche's Spectacular Cuvee Fiancee 2016
08 August 2018

We are delighted to offer this stellar cuvee from arguably Châteauneuf’s most exciting young talent. Julien Barrot’s Cuvée Fiancée brings together two complete opposites – 100 year old Grenache from Grand Pierre/ Rayas, Palestor and Terres Blanches plots and young Syrah from the Cabrieres area. After ageing in concrete for the Grenache and 600 litre used oak barrels for the Syrah during a period of 18 months, the two are blended together to form the most beautiful of partnerships. Seamless, haunting and complex without at any stage being too much, the Fiancée is a fusion of dark fruits, savoury and spice notes with the most glossy of textures. There are no hard edges here, being neither too sweet nor too savoury, too powerful nor too delicate. You can sense the freshness playing a key support role to the ripe fruit, rather than an overly intrusive one. “Harmony” would have been an equally fitting name for this Cuvée. Seductive and smooth enough to be enjoyed young, yet with the sheer drive, depth and balance to age beautifully, this is a truly great Châteauneuf du Pape.
