Deep ruby/purple color and a sweet nose of ripe Grenache along with raspberries, cherries, licquorice, and pepper. On the palate it is both powerful and elegant, with zesty acidity and morderately high tannin. An attractive wine that can be drunk early on or cellared for 12-15 years.
This exquisite Grenache-dominant Châteauneuf-du-Pape is sourced from the Plateau du Piedlong, one of the highest points of this world famous appellation. The 70 year old vines produce a spicy red which has aromas of raspberry, cherry, white pepper and dried violet. The full bodied palate asserts itself with flavours of dark cherry and bitter chocolate that align themselves with hints of blueberry, lavender and porcini. The fine balance of tannin, acidity and concentrated fruits mean this wine will keep on evolving in the glass and in the bottle.
