The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Barbe Rac is 100% Grenache, but this parcel is located on the western edge of the appellation, in what Chapoutier describes as a hot, dry location—even in the context of the appellation. From vines planted in 1901-1902, this is a dense, plummy wine, oozing with concentrated fruit and even turning a bit fudge-like on the long, supple finish. I don't expect it to age quite as well as the Croix de Bois, but it's still a thrilling wine.

Tasting note


The 2016 M. Chapoutier Chateauneuf-du-Pape Barbe Rac is a testament to the mastery of winemaking and the expression of terroir. This organic and biodynamic wine, crafted from century-old Grenache vines, exudes a symphony of refined and elegant flavors. A silky tapestry of pure red fruits, including ripe kirsch, is complemented by a bouquet of herbaceous notes, spices like liquorice, and a hint of chocolate. On the palate, it reveals an ample, fleshy, and round body with outstanding density and an impressive length. Decanting for two hours will allow its complex character to fully unfold, making it an excellent companion to hearty dishes such as braised lamb shanks or beef bourguignon.
