2019 Liberty, Domaine La Barroche

The domaine might have 15 hectares in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, but a wine you shouldn’t miss is this cuvée, from lesser-known Châteauneuf-de-Gadagne just to the south. The name is a nod to their ability to throw off the constraints of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape regulations in this peppery and fragrant wine. It is mainly Grenache with some Mourvèdre, Carignan and Syrah thrown in for good measure.

2019 Liberty, Domaine La Barroche
Domaine La Barroche

Domaine la Barroche is one of the impressive Châteauneuf producers who have emerged on the wine scene here. Ironically, it’s also one of the oldest properties, with a family that's been in the region since the 1400s. In 2002, under young winemaker Julien Barrot, the wines took flight as some of the best in the area. Old vines and intelligent, non-interventionist winemaking are the secrets to Julien’s success, as well as his perfectionist mindset.
