"Relatively open knit and ready to go, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Les Hauts de Barville offers outstanding notes of cherries, spring flowers, spice and Provençal garrigue in a full-bodied, rounded, already hard to resist style. It is a killer wine to drink over the coming 4-6 years.

This larger estate is about as consistent as they come and produces a terrific lineup of wines that can be counted on to deliver ample fruit and texture, with classic Southern Rhône characters." (WA)

"Vivid ruby-red. A wild, perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red berries, passion fruit and incense, while a smoky mineral flourish builds in the glass. Juicy and smooth in texture, offering appealingly sweet raspberry and cherry liqueur flavors and an exotic hint of peach pit. Fine-grained tannins shape the clinging finish, which leaves a hint of candied rose behind." (VM)
