Châteauneuf-du-Pape is famously the strongest, most powerful, and longest-lived wine of the southern Rhône. Louis Barruol's Châteauneuf-du-Pape from contracted growers is a classic expression of the region with aromas and flavors of cherry, thyme, lavender, truffle, and olives. Grenache is the pale-colored, red-fruited, and potpourri-scented red grape variety of the southern Rhône and can be paired with both rustic and sophisticated dishes. Full-bodied Grenache-based wines are ideal with stews, braises, and grilled meats, while lighter versions can work well with dark fish and tomato-based dishes such as ratatouille.

Brilliant violet. Pungent red berry and cherry aromas are complemented by emerging floral and succulent herb nuances. Alluringly sweet and juicy on the palate, offering concentrated black raspberry, cherry and candied lavender flavors that deepen through the back half. Finishes supple, spicy and long, with lingering floral and cherry notes and gentle tannic grip.

A sleek, savory-edged version, which is also tightly coiled for the vintage, with red currant, plum and bitter cherry fruit notes lined by tobacco, dried garrigue and lavender. Delivers a nice, piercing iron note on the finish and has some latent depth, so no immediacy is necessary. Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah and Cinsault. Best from 2023 through 2033. 625 cases made, 670 cases imported. — JM
