External Reviews for Barville Brotte Chateauneuf-du-Pape '
The Brotte family runs the largest negociant firm in Chateauneuf. Bottlers of the Pere Anselm brand among others, they also are owners of a few prime Domaines in the region and this is one of them. Domaine Barville is a 36 acre vineyard located on the heights of Châteauneuf du Pape, with two of the oldest and best terroirs of the appellation. The vines are 50 years of age now and give full expression. Famed Oenological Consultant Philippe Cambie oversees the winemaking. A blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre, aged for 12 months in foudres, this 2010 was scored 91-93 by Robert Parker who said "The superb 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Domaine Barville... exhibits a deep ruby/purple color, good acidity (a hallmark of this vintage), full body, massive fruit, lots of precision and freshness, and a long finish with moderate tannin. Cellar it for 3-4 years and drink it over the following 20-25."
