Domaine Barville Chateauneuf du Pape 2010 is an elegant and powerful red wine made from hand harvested grapes from the Brotte family estate in the heart of Chateuneuf du Pape. Produced from a blend of Grenache Noir, Syrah and Mouvedre (GSM), this wine is ruby red in colour with purple glints with notes of spices, black pepper, lavender, black cherries and blackberry on the nose. On the palate the wine is powerful yet elegant with red fruits flavours and a smooth velvety finish.
The Brotte family are independant wine producers founded in 1931 by M. Charles Brotte, one of the pioneers of bottling in Southern Rhone. Today the winery is run by his grandson Laurent Brotte and they are considered to be the qualitative leader not only in the Chateauneuf du Pape appellation but also of Southern Rhone.
Domaine Barville is Laurent Brotte's family estate on the west side of the Chateauneuf du Pape appellation. Their estate spreads over two of the best areas of the appellation.
