Made from 100% Grenache grapes, whose vines are 90 years old, this 2015 vintage is adorned with a red deep color. The very complex nose of Grenache reveals black fruits then aromas of liquorice and vanilla. On the palate, the wine is remarkably long.
R. Parker - Wine Advocate - 96/100
"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."
The advice of 12bouteilles:This great wine can be kept from 30 to 60 years, or even 50 to 75 years. Serve at a temperature of 17 ° C with a roasted pigeon with porcini mushrooms.
