Domaine La Barroche Chateauneuf-du-Pape Signature 2014
This wine reflects a long family history: generations of enthusiastic and sometimes fanatical winegrowers, never losing sight of the importance of their terroir. Like the men and women of the Barrot family, Domaine La Barroche is many-faceted and generous. It epitomizes the balance, authenticity, and flamboyant character of Châteauneuf-du-Pape – a brilliant blend of hundred year old Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah and Cinsault from the estate's finest terroirs. This is an unique, elegant, silky and opulent wine that invariably expresses its distinctive qualities. It also shows great class thank to its deep color, floral bouquet, freshness, cocoa flavors and delicate aftertaste.

Wine Spectator – The direct black currant and fig paste notes are underscored with tobacco, tar and roasted alder hints, revealing an echo of Black Forest cake. The finish rumbles along, leaving a dark, slightly muscular feel.
Antonio Galloni/Vinous – Bright ruby. Candied red fruits, spicecake and minerals on the highly perfumed nose, with an exotic blood orange nuance in the background. Juicy and precise, displaying very good clarity and lift to its sappy raspberry and cherry flavors. Darker in tone on the finish, clinging with impressive tenacity and appealing sweetness.
