A terrific entry-level offering, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Signature is a blend of 62% Grenache, 18% Mourvèdre, 12% Syrah, 6% Cinsault and 2% other varieties. It's full-bodied and intense but silky and almost weightless, delivering wonderful, complex notes of cherries, raspberries and an array of dried spices and herbs. With 2,500 cases produced, it should be fairly widely available and reasonably priced.

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.
