Domaine La Barroche Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Pure 2005, 750mL (WA96, ST95, WS95) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Domaine La Barroche Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Pure

750mL

Vintage: 2005
Region: France--Rhone--Chateauneuf du Pape
Appellation: Chateauneuf du Pape

WA96, ST95, WS95
Rated 96 points by the Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `One of the stars of the vintage is the 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Pure, another magnificent example of old vine Grenache (all from 100-year-old Grenache vines planted in sandy soils). This profound wine boasts abundant amounts of sweet black cherry and floral characteristics interwoven with notions of crushed rocks and licorice. Full-bodied, opulent, and powerful, with good structure, an unbelievably sweet, expansive mid-palate, and a broad, savory finish, this is truly compelling Chateauneuf du Pape at its finest. It was completely aged in old oak foudres prior to bottling. It should last for 15-20 years. With over 30 acres of vines in Chateauneuf du Pape, this relatively new estate, run by Christian and Julien Barrot, has served notice that they are intent on making high quality wines. In ascending order of quality (to my way of thinking), their three cuvees include the Reserve, Fiancee, and the magnificent 100% old vine Grenache offering called Pure, which is about as close to a great vintage of Rayas as one will find (although Domaine Charvin is equally close in style). Importers: Sussex Wine Merchants, Moorestown, NJ; tel. (609) 608-9644 and Turner Wine Imports, Morrisville, NC; tel. (919) 463-7676` -- Tasting note by Robert Parker
