CDP Pure, Barroche 2011
The 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Pure may be the wine of the vintage. It boasts terrific intensity as well as a majestic perfume of black and red fruits intertwined with floral, sandy soil and lavender notes. This astonishingly rich, essentially naked wine (it was aged totally in old foudres) should age effortlessly for 10-15 years.

|Score: 93/95||Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (203), October 2012|
Showing the vintage's upfront, sunny and sexy character, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Pure has classic kirsch, candle wax, ground pepper and Asian spice characteristics to go with a full-bodied, supple, forward and open knit profile on the palate. Similar to the 2009, just with the dial turned back slightly, this is a beautiful Chateauneuf du Pape geared for drinking in its first 10-15 years. 2015 - 2026
