M. Chapoutier Chateauneuf-du-Pape Barbe Rac 1992

Grenache and other grapes

Description

The Maison Chapoutier, undoubtedly one of the leading names in the Rhône Valley, produces its most prestigious bottles under the Hermitage appellation. The estate spans an area of 350 hectares, all converted to biodynamic agriculture. The cuvée Barbe Rac is crafted from old vines up to 90 years old, planted on terraces composed of galets roulés, a distinctive characteristic of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation. Grenache grapes are harvested manually and carefully selected to retain only the finest bunches. Due to its high sensitivity to oxidation, this grape variety requires vinification in closed concrete vats for a period of three weeks. For the creation of this cuvée, made from grapes of a single plot, only free-run juice (that trickles from the grapes without pressing) is used. It then undergoes maturation in concrete vats for approximately 16 months to refine the tannins and allow the wine to rest. No wooden barrels are used to preserve all the fragrance and delicacy of the wine.
