A Symphony of Terroir and Tradition

Julien Barrot, with his 'Signature' cuvée, presents an eloquent expression of the Domaine La Barroche estate, marrying a rich tapestry of century-old Grenache with Mourvèdre, Syrah, and Cinsault from the crème de la crème of the estate's terroirs.

From Soil to Sip: Crafting Excellence

In the Cellar: An Artisan's Approach

Domaine La Barroche employs gravity-flow techniques and tulip-shaped concrete tanks for fermentation, embracing gentle extractions and over four weeks of skin contact. The wine matures gracefully in a combination of concrete tanks, old oak casks, and 600-liter barrels for 18 months, untouched by filtration to preserve its authentic character.

Tasting Voyage:

Critics acclaim the vintage's harmony and elegance, noting its bouquet of raspberries, cherries, and a chocolatey finish. Its medium to full-bodied profile, adorned with violets, blackberries, and a signature peppery zest, heralds a vintage of finesse, perfect for nuanced food pairings.

The Story Behind the Vines:

Domaine La Barroche's lineage of winemakers, dating back to the 14th century, is a testament to their unwavering dedication to Grenache and the diverse tapestry of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Today, Julien and Laetitia Barrot continue this legacy, infusing modern vitality while honoring centuries-old traditions.

A Celebratory Sip:

The 2021 'Signature' cuvée is more than a wine; it's a narrative of passion, heritage, and meticulous craft. It is an invitation to explore the depth of Châteauneuf-du-Pape's terroir, ideal for those moments that call for reflection and celebration.
