Michel Chapoutier Barbe Rac Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2012

The 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Barbe Rac is brilliant, and checks in near the top of the vintage. Made from 100% Grenache, it gives up loads of kirsch, sweet black cherries, crushed flowers and spice aromatics. Full-bodied, beautifully structured, with building tannin and a seamless, layered feel, it can be enjoyed anytime over the coming 10-12 years. There are only 850 cases, and as always, elegance and balance are the name of the game here. eRobertParker.com

Not too dry. Light. Fruity. I like it.

Tasted blind and nailed this wine (a rarity for me!). Delicious with all the typicity of good Greache. Stalled on mid palate a bit, but nice approachability and long rich ganache finish.
