Parker: 96 Points for Châteauneuf-du-Pape Barbe Rac 2010

M. Chapoutier Châteauneuf-du-Pape Barbe Rac 2010
96 points

A magnificent effort, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Barbe Rac boasts huge notes of kirsch, exotic herbs, lavender, cedar, fig, black cherry, black currant, licorice and roasted meats. This flamboyant, rich, full-throttle Chateauneuf du Pape should age well for two decades. It will be interesting to follow this wine’s evolution alongside the brilliant 2009 and 2007 Barbe Racs.
