2014 Domaine La Barroche Chateauneuf-du-Pape Signature Rhone France - 1.5L Magnum
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 epitomises 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 colour, floral bouquet, freshness, cocoa flavours and delicate aftertaste.
Rated 95 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Signature is a blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre and the rest Syrah, Vaccarese and Cinsault that offers lots of kirsch and black cherry nuances with more background notes of scorched earth, creamy licorice and spring flowers. Hitting 15% natural alcohol, it has fabulous density on the palate, medium to full-bodied richness, sweet tannin and good acidity. It’s a rockin’ effort in this difficult vintage.
