Wine AdvocateWhat should be a terrific value, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Domaine Barville checks in as a mix of 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre that was completely destemmed and aged in a combination of foudre, new barrels, old barrels and concrete tanks. It's a charming, ripe, even sexy barrel sample that has terrific notes of plums, blackberries, garrigue and violets. Drink this soft, pleasure-bent beauty anytime over the coming 4-6 years.
