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 2019 M. Chapoutier Chateauneuf-du-Pape Barbe Rac is a testament to the mastery of winemaking and the expression of terroir. This wine, with its intense garnet hue, unfolds a tapestry of vibrant and rich flavors. On the nose, it presents a complex blend of herbaceous spices, liquorice, and chocolate, with a delightful undercurrent of strawberry fruit. The palate is greeted with a lush and silky texture, revealing layers of sweet, ripe kirsch, black raspberries, and cherries, all accented by a subtle floral touch. The wine's ample body and fleshy warmth are balanced by an outstanding density and an impressive length, promising a remarkable ageing potential. This organic and biodynamic treasure, crafted from 100% old vine Grenache, is a true reflection of the Rhone's top Southern terroir.
