"Showing slightly better now than it did on release (which is common for all of Julien's wines, and the '12s in general), the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Signature is a blend of 65% Grenache, 16% Mourvedre, 13% Syrah and 6% other permitted varieties. It's young and fruity, yet still delivers tons of pleasure with its cassis, licorice, crushed flower and garrigue aromas and flavors. Beautifully fruited, rounded, supple and with sweet tannin, I suspect it will age gracefully (similar to '06) and drink well for all its life." Jeb Dunnuck

About the Producer

Laetita and Julien Barrot have managed Domaine la Barroche since the early 2000s. This prestigious domaine in Châteauneuf-du-Pape has sandy and limestone soil. The vineyard consists largely of old Grenache vines, complemented by Mourvèdre, Syrah, Cinsault, Clairette Blanche, and Vaccarèse. The wine is aged for an average of 18 months in various sorts of containers: foudres (large casks), barrels, and concrete vats. Cuvée Signature has fresh ripe fruit aromas and Pure, made from century-old Grenache vines, is extremely smooth and elegant.
