More emphasis on density, with notes of garrigue and liquorice, sophisticated. This year, Barbe Rac offers us a more austere development, combining all the elements of a great age-worthy Châteauneuf-du-Pape.


Colour : intense garnet.
Nose : herbacy, spices (liquorice), chocolate, fruits (strawberry).
Mouth : ample, fleshy, hot and round.
Outstanding density with an impressive length.

The parcel producing this single vineyard has a complex and various geological composition. Vines are 90 years old.


The grapes are carefully selected during the harvest. This sorting is compulsory and allows the selection of the best bunches of grapes.

Fermenting lasts about 3 weeks (which allows a polymerization of tannins)with a temperature which varies between 30 and 33°C. Only the free-run wine is used in this single vineyard.
