Imagine a corner of land filled with century-old vines and the purest, sandy soil. The resulting wine represents a striking homage to Châteauneuf-du-Pape and its most celebrated grape varietal, the Grenache. It embodies delicacy, an escape, a synthesis of subtle flavours: strawberries, cherries, liquorice with a hint of spices. It signifies the perfect balance between kindness and strength.

Wine AdvocateThere's no denying I love Grenache grown on sandy sites within the appellation, like the Domaine La Barroche 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Pure. It's vinified in concrete and raised in foudre, so it should hit a home run with me. There's tons of cherry fruit packed into this wine, a velvety texture...so what's my issue with it? The heat. The alcohol shows through on the mid-palate and the finish. If you're more tolerant of that in your table wines than I am, you'll probably score it several points higher. As it is, I still wouldn't turn a glass down if offered.
