Domaine la Barroche Chateaunuf du Pape 2007

Chateauneuf du PapeThis is a very impressive wine, from a benchmark producer and a good vintage.  The wine showed very good structure and composition; it is texturally awesome, having a weighty and viscous palate but at the same time great acidity and big tannins which pushed through and gave the wine a nice lightness.  The palate has a lot going on.  Up front it shows deep blackberry fruits and gamey meats, with spices and earthen notes laced throughout.  It is a layered, nuanced and complete wine that is representative of some of the best CDP's I've tasted.

Textually and structurally this wine is awesome.  The acidity seems to be buried in the heaps of rich fruits.  This wine is still a baby as of 2/2011, but drinks beautifully.  I'd recommend picking up enough of this wine to have now and later.
