Dated all the way back to the 17th century. Domaine la Barroche was founded when Alexandre Barrot began obtaining land in Chateauneuf du Pape. Those original purchases, which became what we know of as Domaine la Barroche, along with more land bought at later dates, have remained in the hands of the same family for hundreds of years.
This signature blend offers a singular wine personality, a delicate alchemy of spices and well-ripened black fruits, a delight for the senses.
La Barroche Signature is aged in a combination of foudres and stainless steel vats. The Grenache is aged in foudres, the Syrah and Mourvedre is aged in French oak barrels and demi-muids and the Cinsault is aged in concrete vats for an average of 18 months.
