Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

64% Grenache from the 100 year old Palestor parcel, Boursan, and Grand Pierre plots. 17% Mourvèdre from La Mascarone and Boursan plots. 11% Syrah from the Le Parc plot. 8% Cinsault from the 60 year old Pierre à Feu parcel

Critical Acclaim

"Ruby-red. Raspberry and boysenberry aromas are complicated by mocha and anise. Creamy red berry preserve flavors gain weight and richness with air and take a turn to richer blueberry and boysenberry on the back. Rich but energetic, with excellent clarity and florality on the persistent finish."
93 Points

"Solidly built, with an ample core of boysenberry, blackberry and braised fig fruit flavors laced with dark licorice. The long, grippy finish lets crème de cassis and plum sauce notes sail on. Rather fruit-centric now, but has the stuffing to develop further. Best from 2010 through 2027."
92 Points

"Julien Barrot started making the wines at his family's domaine in 2002, when he was 23. His 2007 is full-throttle Chateauneuf, the dark chewy berry fruit filled out with chocolate earth and highly glossed with oak. Well supported by firm tannins, it's a red that's approachable now, but could benefit from another ten to 15 years in the cellar. "
