Pure Blanc
Quintessence of a white grape varietal

Imagine a unique plot of sandy clay soil named “Les Pialons” in Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

This 100% Clairette is a shining example of one of the oldest grape varieties in Provence, first planted in the 14th century.

Featuring superb aromatic complexity, it is the epitome of finesse and demonstrates elegance and vivacity in perfect harmony.

” Good things come to those who wait “
Domaine La Barroche is a perfect illustration of this French saying. Since he arrived at the domaine in 2002, Julien Barrot looks after the 15 hectares of vines inherited from previous generations with the greatest of care and respect. His Holy Grail? A white wine. Producing a great white wine required 15 years to have a better understanding of the terroir and for the vines to be old enough for Pure Blanc to express absolute finesse and reflect the synergy between elegance and vivacity.

ASSEMBLAGE

100% Clairette
from les Pialons, an emblematic terroir of Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Consisting of very fine sand of marine origin, the iron-rich terroir that produces Pure Blanc has an outstanding subsoil supplying the vines with water and nutrients.
The vineyard’s unique geology is conducive to a range of extremely refined aromas in the wine, as well as an elegant, silky mouth feel accompanied by a great deal of freshness.

Viticulture

This cuvée was made with the greatest of care with respect for the environment and in keeping with the lunar calendar. We use only natural fertilisers in the vineyard, pick by hand, and sort the grapes extremely rigorously.

Wine-making and aging

The wine ages for 15 months in demi-muids barrels on its lees.

Tasting

Pure Blanc from Domaine La Barroche is extremely elegant and delicate. This cuvée has fresh, floral, and spicy overtones as well as subtle nuances of fennel and star anise. It features a pure, mineral favour with excellent crispness and a great deal of energy. Round, but not rich, this graceful wine reveals all its fullness and personality if decanted beforehand.

Red and white: a highly symbolic label

Devoid of artifice, and as symbolic as it is flamboyant, Pure Blanc’s blood-red label is intentionally very different from Pure Rouge’s immaculate white label. In an allusion to the poster painted by Ronan Barrot for the 2017 Avignon Festival, Pure Blanc also celebrates the first meeting that same year of Laetitia & Julien Barrot and their cousin, the artist – proof, if need be, that textures, aromas, and colours are part of the family’s DNA…

Our vineyard
You cannot make a great wine without a great terroir

A family-owned estate with fewer than 15 hectares of vines, Domaine La Barroche nevertheless features a variety of terroirs in the northern and north-eastern part of the appellation, reflecting the best in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The variety of soils, diverse grape varieties, and hundred year old vines make Domaine la Barroche stand out.
