Domaine La Barroche
95
"One of the greatest expressions of pure Grenache out there, BarrotÄôs 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Pure comes from a single plot (near Grand Pierre, Rayas and Pointu) of 100+-year-old Grenache vines that are planted in pure sand soils. While this wine sometimes gets classified as a modern Châ- teauneuf , the reality is itÄôs traditional all the way, with only partial destemming, vinification in concrete vats and aging all in foudre. It offers up a smorgasbord of kirsch liqueur, sweet cherries, spice, incense and flowers, and this is followed by a fabulous pure, elegant, yet rich and concentrated effort that has no hard edges, sweet tannin and blockbuster length. ItÄôs one of the stars of the vintage and will thrill for 10-15 years. -JD"
