Joe Czerwinski

Yields were a paltry 12 hectoliters per hectare in the Brunier`s Piedlong parcel, so the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Piedlong contains only 85% Grenache (50% whole cluster), while the balance is Mourvèdre. It offers a lovely array of floral and herbal notes layered over raspberry and cherry fruit on the nose, while the palate is full-bodied but seemingly weightless. Fine and elegant already, it finishes long, with pure, almost crystalline lattice-like fruit and silky tannins. 93-95 points
