Chateauneuf Du Pape 2012 Secret de Léonce, Domaine Barville, Brotte
The Brotte family runs the largest negociant firm in Chateauneuf. Bottlers of the Pere Anselm brand among others, they also own and work with a few of the most prime Domaines in the region. This is a new cuvee which was created to be both complex and powerful. Grapes were selected from three of the best Chateauneuf-du-Pape vineyard sites: to the west, ‘Beaurenard’, home to the Domaine Barville, with its clay and limestone soil; and in the south-east ‘Rayas’ and ‘la Crau’, vineyards owned by collaborating vigneron, which have sandy soils. This wine is styled in the best Chateauneuf tradition and shows the expression of these exceptional terroirs. Famed Oenological Consultant Philippe Cambie oversees the winemaking. A blend of 85% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre, aged for 12-18 months in French oak foudres. 2012 was another superb vintage for Chateauneuf and the Wine Advocate scored this wine 92 points saying " More dense and concentrated than the straight Châteauneuf, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Secret Barville is a smoking blend of 85% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre (from Bois Dauphin, Pignan, La Combe and Rayas lieux-dits) that spent 18 months in Burgundy barrels. This is a new cuvee that’s replacing both the Vieilles Vignes and the Secret de Leonce bottlings. It offers up hints of vanilla bean in its black raspberry, cassis, licorice and sweet spice-driven bouquet, and it doesn’t miss a beat on the palate, with full-bodied richness, fabulous purity and terrific length. In short, it's a gorgeous Châteauneuf du Pape that will continue to dish out loads of pleasure over the coming decade."
