Domaine La Barroche Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Pure 2014
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
|Brand||Domaine La Barroche|
The 2014 ChÃ¢teauneuf du Pape Pure shows the classic, tight, sappy, medium to full-bodied profile that this cuvÃ©e normally shows early in its life. Black cherries, currants, licorice and sappy herbs all emerge from this balanced, nicely structured, solidly concentrated 2014 that will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring and keep for a decade after that.
Focused, with a streamlined core of raspberry and red currant fruit flavors racing through, flecked with shiso leaf, mint and tea notes. Very silky through the finish, with a light iron twinge at the very end. Drink now through 2024. 250 cases made.
