91 Pts Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The deep plum/ruby-tinged 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Bargeton (80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, and 10% Mourvedre) was aged in 1- to 3-year-old small barrels. The most structured, dense, and tannic of these Chateauneufs, it begs for 2-4 years of bottle age. Aromas of charcoal, roasted meats, grilled Provencal herbs, black currants, and cherries are followed by a deep, chewy, thick, well-structured, muscular wine. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2030." -91+ Points Robert Parker
"Dark red. Pungent raspberry and dried floral aromas, with a suave spice character building with air. Deep, sweet and round, with fleshy red berry flavors and impressive finishing grip. Seriously structured but with no hardness or edges."

"The wine is destemmed with 3 weeks maceration. It spends 3 months in fermentation. Then, 15% is aged in foudre, 70% in older barrels, and 15% in tank. They are not fined or filtered. The wine is not racked until bottling, sulphur added only at bottling." -Importer
"Some of the vineyards are located in the lieux-dits La Crau, Valori, Le Cristia (located in the east), and Palestor. All of these wines have a high content of old Grenache, and are treated with as little sulfur as possible. They are neither fined nor filtered." -Harry Karis, the Chateauneuf du Pape Book
