There are nearly 300 cases of the nectar that is the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Pure. Produced from 100+-year-old Grenache vines grown in sandy soils, simply put, it's just awesome juice. A kaleidoscope of red fruits—cherries, raspberries and strawberries—swirl languorously across the palate, boasting great intensity while seeming weightless at the same time. Hints of dried herbs and spices add complexity to this luscious concoction, which must be tasted to be believed. Silky and endless, and showing no alcoholic heat on the finish, it's the poster child for great Grenache. Am I being too conservative at 99 points?

Under the young and capable leadership of Laetitia and Julien Barrot, Domaine la Barroche represents a bright light in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The brother and sister team have 15 hectares in the appellation, mainly in the northern sector (generally cooler and sandier). Only 12.5 hectares (with an impressive average of 65-year-old vines) are currently producing, other portions having recently been replanted to white varieties or Counoise. The Signature is a terrific introduction to the house style, ripe and silky without going over the top, while the Pure bottling represents how great Grenache grown on sandy soils can be. There's now also a white version of Pure, made from Clairette. It, too, is a dramatic reflection of its pairing of grape variety and site. The 2008, at ten years of age, is nearing its end, but it still delivers plenty of pleasure and is a noteworthy success from a challenging vintage.
