Domaine Barge, Côte-Rôtie, Cuvée du Plessy 2017 - 0,75L


Le Plessy is a 3.5 hectare plot of land located on the hillside. Gilles Barge, Julien's father, bought it in 1979 from Mr. Duplessy. Syrah is planted on the majority of the vineyard.

The 2017 Cuvée du Plessy reveals a lovely aromatic bouquet. In the mouth the wine is round and silky with notes of small red and black jammy fruits. A beautiful Côte-Rôtie as we like them! 

Formerly named Domaine Gilles Barge, since 2019 it bears the name of Julien Barge, son of Gilles and Alice. Julien favors responsible agriculture: he has stopped using sulfur in the white wines and has also eliminated weed killers from the vineyard. As he says, "we need an agricultural method that respects and intervenes without destroying. Plants, animals form the balance of things. We must maintain them."

The family estate includes 8 hectares (5.70 hectares of Côte-rôtie, 1 hectare of Condrieu and 1.50 hectares of Saint-Joseph). Syrah, the majority grape variety, thrives on the steep hills. 

The wines of Domaine Barge are superb. Not to be missed!
