Brotte Domaine Barville Châteauneuf-du-Pape AOC 2016
Ruby with purple glints.
Typical of its terroir with a nose of spices, black pepper, lavender, black cherries and blackberries.
Elegant and powerful, with a distinctive velvety palate showing red fruits and notes of garrigue.
Syrah and Mourvèdre are aged in French oak barrels (1/3 new, 1/3 one year, 1/3 two years), while Grenache is matured in concrete vats and 100 year old oak vats to preserve the fruit.
Enjoy with powerful dishes, BBQ steak, black truffle and foie gras or melting chocolate puddings.
