K&L Notes

Originally founded in 1931 in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the Brotte family has since combined 4 different Rhone estates under the Maison Brotte emblem. Working sustainably and certified Terra Vitis, they express each of their terroirs beautifully. Maison Brotte is managed by Laurent Brotte, grandson of the founder, along with his wife and sons. "Les Hauts de Barville" is from the Domaine Barville property in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The soils are limestone- and sand-based with lots of galets (rolled stones) covering the ground. The "Hauts" is composed of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre each aged in a mix of barrels for the more structured grapes and the softer Grenache is aged in large oak casks and concrete tanks.

    It might be easy to overlook the 2017 vintage in Chateauneuf but that would be a mistake. In terms of quality, 2017 is an excellent follow-up to the classic 2015 vintage and the legendary 2016. The beauty of 2017s are their generosity of fruit and openness. And that's where the Brotte "Les Hauts de Barville" fits in nicely. This is a gorgeous expression with loads of brambly strawberry and raspberry fruit. Not just a better than average Cotes du Rhone, this reflects great Chateauneuf terroir with its complimentary profile of anise, red flowers and spices. This rightly hits the mark and with its silky tannins makes for terrific youthful drinking. Sum that all up and put it on the shelf for under $30 and you have one of the best deals that 2021 will offer up.
