Tasting Notes

From decimated yields of 0.4 tons per acre, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Barbe Rac (100% Grenache brought up all in concrete) shows beautiful purity of fruit, notes of blueberries, wild strawberries, ground pepper, and crushed violets, brilliant concentration, and fine, building tannins. It's a remarkable effort in the vintage that has more depth and concentration than just about every other wine out there. It’s going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and cruise for 15 years in more in cool cellars.
