2015 M. Chapoutier "Barbe Rac" Châteauneuf-du-Pape 6-Pack (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1434555 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 100% Grenache 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Barbe Rac sports a deep ruby color as well as blockbuster notes of black cherries, crème de cassis, graphite, crushed rock and Provençal spices. This full-bodied beauty has terrific mid-palate density, building, ripe tannin, and serious length, all while still showing the hallmark elegance and minerality of this cuvée. Give bottles 4-5 years in the cellar, and enjoy over the following decade or more. While I’ve always preferred the Barbe Rac cuvée in the past, the quality of the Croix de Bois cuvée continues to soar, and today I find these two wines – while very different in style – generally equal in terms of overall quality.

96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2015 Châteauneuf-Du-Pape Barbe Rac comes from a single vineyard on the western side of the appellation. Made from 100% Grenache and brought up all in concrete tank, it offers a gorgeous bouquet of strawberry jam, garrigue, pepper and dried meat. Full-bodied, powerful, elegant and seamless on the palate, with a savory, layered, complex profile, give bottles 3-4 years and enjoy over the following 10-15.

96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very silky and refined, but with ample depth and drive, as the core of kirsch, plum sauce and raspberry coulis flavors is focused and lengthy, while light tea, incense, mineral and shiso leaf notes dart throughout. The long finish has well-embedded, latent grip. Should cruise in the cellar. (JM) Inner quote mark (6/2018)

93-95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Lurid ruby. An explosively perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red berries, candied lavender, incense and Asian spices. Concentrated raspberry, cinnamon, floral pastille and rhubarb flavors stain the palate and show an alluring sweetness and strong energy on the back half. Plays power off finesse with a deft hand and finishes extremely long and spicy; well-knit tannins make a late appearance. Inner quote mark (3/2017)
