Domaine la Barroche Chateauneuf du Pape 2014
Not Vintage Specific
Item Number: 24763
Wine Advocate 93
"...offers lots of kirsch and black cherry nuances with more background notes of scorched earth, creamy licorice and spring flowers. Hitting 15% natural alcohol, it has fabulous density on the palate, medium to full-bodied richness, sweet tannin and good acidity. It’s a rockin’ effort in this difficult vintage." ~ JD
Vinous Media 93
"Deep, smoke-accented dark berry and floral pastille scents are sharpened by a note of peppery spice. Smoky and sweet in the mouth, offering concentrated boysenberry and cherry flavors and a hint of candied violet. Shows very good power and energy and finishes with excellent focus and length; velvety, late-arriving tannins add shape. Quite serious for an entry-level bottling; I'd bet on this making a solid cellar candidate." ~ JR
Wine Spectator 91
"Juicy, with plum paste and raspberry pâte de fruit flavors that race along, bolstered by a bright anise note. Stays juicy through the finish, showing hints of plum skin, fruitcake and lightly singed alder. Best from 2017 through 2025. 1,800 cases made." ~ JM
