In his quest to reveal the best of the terroir, this cuvée is the one which captures the most the essence of the estate and Julien Barrot's philosophy as a winegrower. A subtle blend of century-old Grenache vines, Mourvèdre, Syrah and Cinsault from the estate's finest terroirs. A unique, silky and opulent wine that clearly expresses its distinctive qualities. It also shows great class thank to its deep colour, floral bouquet, freshness, cocoa flavours and delicate aftertaste.

I was able to taste two releases from Julien Barrot. Looking first at his 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée Julien Barrot, which is a blend of 60% Grenache, 19% Mourvedre, 13% Syrah, and a handful of other varieties, it sports a deeper purple hue to go with a fabulous bouquet of kirsch and blackberry fruits as well as licorice, crushed stone, licorice, and ground pepper. It shines for its balance and elegance on the palate, but still brings substantial fruit as well as structure. It's a thrilling wine that will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and keep for two decades in cold cellars.
