Domaine La Barroche "Pure" 2014


94pts WA- A wine that checks in near the top of the vintage is the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Pure. Julien commented that they took a risk in 2014 by dropping tons of crop and leaf thinning, all with the goal of getting as much ripeness as early as possible. This payed off huge in a vintage like 2014 where once the rain started, it didn’t stop. Possessing a beautiful ruby color and fabulous notes of framboise, wild strawberries and dried flowers with ample sandy, loamy characteristics, this beauty hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannin and outstanding length. It’s not the most profound Pure ever made, but it’s a fabulous wine and a testament to the hard work put in by this team in the vintage. Note that this will be the last vintage made in the old cellar
