Chateauneuf Du Pape - Rhone Valley - France

Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine Barville Chateauneuf-Du-Pape Blanc Roussanne 2014

Rated 93 by Robert Parker
Brotte’s 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Domaine Barville Roussanne Blanc is a smokin’ effort that makes the most of the vintage. Made from 100% Roussanne (from the Beaurenard and Rayas lieux-dits) that was raised all in new oak for right months, it offers fabulous notes of tropical fruits, buttered citrus, brioche and a kiss of honeysuckle to go with a medium-bodied, textured, balanced style on the palate. It’s a rich, food-friendly wine that will shine on the dinner table over the coming 4-5 years (maybe more).

Winery Domaine Barville

Region: Rhone Valley

The southern French wine region of the Rhone Valley has been home to wine-makers for over two thousand years, with the first grapevines of the region being cultivated in around 600 BCE when the ancient Greeks arrived with their knowledge of viticulture and eagerness to produce more wine. Today, the region is famed around the world for the excellence of its produce, and has dozens of wineries making the most of the wide range of grape varietals which flourish there. In the northern sub-region, the continental climate and brisk winds coming off the Central Massif allow wineries to grow a smaller range of varietals – predominantly Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier, whereas the southern, more Mediterranean sub-region allows far more range. Here, dozens of varietals are grown for the production of white, red and rosé wines, all packed full of flavor and able to express the unique terroir they are grown on.

Country: France

Year in, year out, France enjoys its prestigious reputation as the producer of the finest wines in the world. With a wine making history which spans several thousand years and owes its expertise to the Romans, it comes as little surprise that this most highly esteemed of the Old World wine countries continues to impress and enchant both novices and experts to this day. Despite the rise in quality of wines from neighboring European countries, not to mention the New World, the French wine industry continues to boom, with up to eight billion bottles being produced in recent years. However, France prides itself on always putting quality before quantity, and the wide range in fine produce is a testament to the dedication and knowledge of the wineries across the country. Indeed, from rich and complex reds to light and aromatic white wines, French wines are as varied and interesting as they are enjoyable to drink, making this country a firm favorite for wine lovers across the globe.
