Domaine Lucien Barrot et Fils Chateauneuf Du Pape Cuvee,Rhone, France, 2010 (750ml)

$39.99

Plump and dense, with layers of fig paste, plum jam and fruitcake backed by a broad, muscular structure. The long finish lets raisin, currant and licorice notes stretch out. This has a solid core of fruit, if not the overall range of the vintage’s best.
