The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Barbe Rac is 100% Grenache, but this parcel is located on the western edge of the appellation, in what Chapoutier describes as a hot, dry location—even in the context of the appellation. From vines planted in 1901-1902, this is a dense, plummy wine, oozing with concentrated fruit and even turning a bit fudge-like on the long, supple finish. I don't expect it to age quite as well as the Croix de Bois, but it's still a thrilling wine.

Tasted blind. Crimson. Broad, ripe, fresh, black-cherry notes with balancing acidity and nothing out of kilter or overdone. Pretty hot finish but there is lots of ripe fruit here. Slightly dry end for the moment.?
