Winemaker Notes

Rich and creamy with persistent aromas of red fruits and spices, this cuvée will convince lovers of fruit in its youth and reward the most patient (up to 10 years of aging) who will then benefit from its full potential and its aromas. special truffles and garrigue.

Critical Acclaim

WS 93
Wine Spectator

Dark and winey in profile, with steeped plum and blackberry fruit flavors leading the way, while black tea and mineral accents fill in behind them. Tobacco and garrigue accents dot the finish for added range and length. Really solid. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre.

JS 92
James Suckling
Complex nose of mulberries, baking spices, dried herbs, bitter chocolate and smoke. Full-bodied with well-integrated tannins. Dense, with a grainy texture and juicy, flavorful and spicy character. Drink after 2022.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Brotte's 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Hauts de Barville is a bit less floral than the Domaine Barville bottling but just as satisfying, with oodles of cherry fruit, ample weight on the palate and a supple, almost creamy texture. A blend of 70% Grenache and 15% each Mourvèdre and Syrah, aged in a variety of vessels, it finishes silky and long, Best after 2022

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, Châteauneuf-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 Châteauneuf-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 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is white wine. 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.

With bold fruit flavors and accents of sweet spice, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre form the base of the classic Rhône Red Blend, while Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise often come in to play. Though they originated from France’s southern Rhône Valley, with some creative interpretation, Rhône blends have also become popular in other countries. Somm Secret—Putting their own local spin on the Rhône Red Blend, those from Priorat often include Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah make an appearance.
