Chateauneuf du Pape 2012 Domaine Barville, Brotte
The Brotte family runs the largest negociant firm in Chateauneuf. Bottlers of the Pere Anselm brand among others, they also are owners of a few prime Domaines in the region and this is one of them. Domaine Barville is a 36 acre vineyard on seven plots located on the heights of Châteauneuf du Pape, with two of the oldest and best terroirs of the appellation. At over 300 feet of elevation the mistral winds blow through and cool the vines that now average 35+ years of age and give full expression. Famed Oenological Consultant Philippe Cambie oversees the winemaking. A blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre, aged for 12 months in oak foudres. 2012 was another superb vintage for Chateauneuf and the Wine Advocate scored this wine 91-93+ saying "Looking even better, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape had an added layer of richness and depth over the 2011. Offering up ripe notes of blackberry, underbrush, pepper and new leather, it is fresh and lively on the palate, with medium-bodied richness and fantastic purity of fruit. It should be relatively approachable on release and drink well for 7-8 years, if not a decade. Drink 2015-2021."

    Comments about Chateauneuf du Pape 2012 Domaine Barville, Brotte:

    Barville is a producer who never disappoints and this latest vintage of Chateauneuf is no different. Complex, bold aromas of black fruit and spice with a mouthfilling silky texture make it an excellent bottle for special occasions.
