Wine Information

  • Region/ Country:  Turkey
  • Grapes: 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre

The Châteauneuf-du-Pape style has made its way to Turkey! Born in 2000 on the shores of the Marmara Sea in the Thrace region of Turkey, the Barbare estate flourishes in a climate that is favourable to vine growing. The vineyard extends over 25 hectares of vines cultivated in organic and biodynamic agriculture. As consultant oenologist, Xavier Vignon continue to visit the domaine several times a year in order to support and guide the teams in the vineyards and cellars. The XL Premier cuvée is the fruit of this joint effort.

"While outside this report, I was able to taste the 2012 Barbare XL Premier with winemaker Xavier Vignon and it's a wine that's well worth seeking out. A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre from clay soils along the Mediterranean Sea in Turkey, it boasts a stunning bouquet of blackberries, leather, spice box, cedar, and flowers. Complex and medium-bodied, with an elegant, seamless texture and fine tannins, it's a remarkable wine that will keep for 8-10 years."

“雖然這份報告之外,我有機會品嚐到2012年的Barbare XL Premier,與釀酒師Xavier Vignon一同品嚐。這是一款非常值得尋找的美酒。它是由土耳其地中海沿岸黏土土壤中的格納殊、席拉和慕合威特葡萄釀造而成。它散發出黑莓、皮革、香料盒、雪松和花香的驚人香氣。這款酒複雜而中等酒體,口感優雅而無縫,單寧細膩,是一款非凡的美酒,可以陳放8至10年。”
