Brotte Chateauneuf du Pape Les Hauts de Barville Rouge 2018
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
Ripe and silky in feel, with raspberry and plum compote notes that glide through, supported by light sandalwood, garrigue and tea notes. A subtle mineral streak adds length and lift through the finish. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Best from 2020 through 2034. 5,500 cases made, 1,880 cases imported.
Rich and velvety, yet also fresh and mouthwatering, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Hauts de Barville is 70% Grenache and 15% each Mourvèdre and Syrah. Licorice, plum and black cherry flavors all come together in a full-bodied wine that's meant to be consumed young, meaning over the next 7-8 years.
