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

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.
