DOMAINE LA BARROCHE
Chateauneuf du Pape, France
Julien and Laetitia Barrot are the brother and sister team leading this family estate into the future. Their ancestor founded the estate in 1703, but the family’s wine-making story goes back to the 14th century. Julien takes care of the 36 acre vineyard and the wine-making, while Laetitia manages the commercial side. When they took over from their father Christian, they brought an even higher level of purity to the wines. They pride themselves on the diversity of their terroirs, and their legacy of old vines. The wines are elegant and fine, and receive regular critical acclaim.
