Domaine Lucien Barrot et Fils Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2007
This Chateauneuf-du-Pape is often considered one of the purest and most traditional of the appellation. Fleshy and warm, spicy fruits and and easy-going style make this Rhone selection a true crowd-pleaser. The vines are dispersed throughout the Chateauneuf-du-Pape production zone, 28 parcels in all. Most are on south or south-west facing slopes. The vines are 50 years old on average, with 80% being more than 60 years old.
Complex, bold, and luscious. Dark fruit and spicy goodness. Pairs beautifully with pork loin.
External Reviews for Domaine Lucien Barrot et Fils Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Plump and dense, with layers of fig paste, plum jam and fruitcake backed by a broad, muscular structure. The long finish lets raisin, currant and licorice notes stretch out. This has a solid core of fruit, if not the overall range of the vintages best. Drink now through 2019. 4,000 cases made. -JM A traditional wine, the 2007 has dark plum/garnet color and a broad flavor spectrum of herbs, cherries, earth, and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, surprisingly evolved, and delicious already, this wine will require consumption over the next 7-9 years.
