Winemaker Notes

Ruby color with violet sheen. Aromas marked by its terroir character of spices, black pepper, lavender, black cherries and blackberries. Elegant and well balanced, full-bodied, powerful with persistent aromas of red fruit and garrigue. This wine offers a great tasting pleasure and reward the most patients.

Enjoy with braised meat with black olives, beef tartare with bearnaise sauce, foil truffle foie gras, chocolate cake.

Wine Spectator
Rock-solid, with the ripe and racy profile of the vintage letting the raspberry and black cherry fruit sail through, laced with light anise, black tea and mineral notes. A silky and refined display of depth. Drink now through 2030.

The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Domaine Barville is brilliant stuff, and probably the finest vintage of this wine to date. Based on 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre, with classic red and black fruits, garrigue, and spice, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness, an opulent texture, and sweet tannin. Drink it over the coming 10-12 years.

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

Plump black-cherry and dried strawberry notes are accented by hints of cinnamon, leather and toast in this full-bodied red. Bold in alcohol and richly concentrated, it's a warming, plush wine, but balanced by fresh red-currant acidity and soft, supple tannins. Drink now–2030.

Chateauneuf-du-Pape

Rhone, France

View all products

Famous for its full-bodied, seductive and spicy reds with flavor and aroma characteristics reminiscent of black cherry, baked raspberry, garrigue, olive tapenade, lavender and baking spice, Chateauneuf-du-Pape is the leading sub-appellation of the southern Rhône River Valley. Large pebbles resembling river rocks, called "galets" in French, dominate most of the terrain. The stones hold heat and reflect it back up to the low-lying gobelet-trained vines. Though the galets are typical, they are not prominent in every vineyard. Chateau Rayas is the most obvious deviation with very sandy soil.

According to law, eighteen grape varieties are allowed in Chateauneuf-du-Pape and most wines are blends of some mix of these. For reds, Grenache is the star player with Mourvedre and Syrah coming typically second. Others used include Cinsault, Counoise and occasionally Muscardin, Vaccarèse, Picquepoul Noir and Terret Noir.

Only about 6-7% of wine from Chateauneuf-du-Pape is white. Blends and single-varietal bottlings are typically based on the soft and floral Grenache Blanc but Clairette, Bourboulenc and Roussanne are grown with some significance.

The wine of Chateauneuf-du-Pape takes its name from the relocation of the papal court to Avignon. The lore says that after moving in 1309, Pope Clément V (after whom Chateau Pape-Clément in Pessac-Léognan is named) ordered that vines were planted. But it was actually his successor, John XXII, who established the vineyards. The name however, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, translated as "the pope's new castle," didn’t really stick until the 19th century.
