It's flash sale time on an amazing Chateauneuf du Pape from a 100 point winemaker, that combines elegance with power and is now under $35 a bottle! Another amazing wine from Laurent Brotte, their cuvee Secret de Barville is one of the top values of the 2020 vintage. A step up in class from our previous offering on the Haut de Barville, with more Grenache power and concentration. The 2020 ratchets the intensity up a notch and is full-bodied, concentrated, and flamboyant, with loads of ripe black fruits, chocolate, garrigue, and peppery aromas and flavors. A blend of mostly Grenache, brought up in old barrels and stainless steel, it's stacked and packed, with serious amounts of fruit and texture. It's also the last vintage made by the brilliant Philippe Cambie, whose made 100-point wines at Domaine Saint Prefert, Domaine Giraud & Clos Saint Jean. Full-bodied and elegant, don't miss this amazing value in Chateauneuf du Pape.

"Blackberries, Provençal herbs, some iron and floral notes, as well as plenty of red fruits round out the 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape Secret Barville, a ripe, sexy, character-filled 2020. I love its tannins, it has a broad, expansive mouthfeel, and terrific balance. The blend is 75% Grenache, 15% Syrah, the 10% Mourvedre, aged 18 months in a mix of new and old barrels, stainless steel, and clay jars." Jeb Dunnuck, 94 Points

"The 2020 Chateauneuf du Pape Secret Barville is another fine, small-volume effort from this large producer. Scents of ripe strawberries and raspberries are accented by touches of resinous pine and garrigue. It's full-bodied but possesses very silky tannins, and the overall effect is one of delicacy and elegance." The Wine Advocate, 93 Points

"The 2020 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Secret de Barville is a blend of 75% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre. Slightly reductive at first, a swirl of its glass gradually releases red and black fruit aromas along with some licorice and dried herbs. Tightly structured, full-bodied and layered, the alcohol and polished tannins are well integrated into the wine. This delicious 2020 red exhibits a mysterious black keyhole on the label." Vinous Media, 93 Points
