2019 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Cuvée Julien Barrot, Domaine La Barroche

This was, until recently, called ‘Signature’, but has been renamed Cuvée Julien Barrot, and is Julien’s flagship wine. It is rich and woven-through with ripe tannin and forest berry flavours. It has a silky body and a long, fruit-driven finish that promised complexity in the years to come.

2019 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Cuvée Julien Barrot, 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.
