DOMAINE LA BARROCHE, Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge Fiancée 2016

DOMAINE LA BARROCHE, Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red FIANCEE 2016

This wine combines two seemingly opposite grapes: 100-year-old Grenache and young Syrah. However, these two varieties comple- ment one another beautifully: a fusion of masculine and feminine – a silky blend of power and finesse with fresh fruit aromas, flowers and spices

BLEND

50% Syrah from the Cabrieres plot, which gives fruit, power, color and cocoa aromas.

50% Grenache from our 100-year-old plots of Grand Pierre/Rayas, Palestor and Terres Blanches blocks. Wine from these grapes has conside- rable finesse and silkiness.

 

VITICULTURE

Rigorous bud pruning.
Green harvesting is done.
The picking is entirely by hand, with a meticulous double sorting in the vineyard. 

 

WINE-MAKING AND AGING

Wine-making in underground concrete vats.
Destemming of underripe stalks.
The wine stays on the skins for over 4 weeks.

Gentle extractions.
Aging in old oak casks and 600 liter barrels for approximately 18 months.
The wine is not filtered before bottling.
