Piedlong Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2014

Piedlong is a rather special Châteauneuf-du-Pape that the Brunier brothers have produced from two distinct parcels since the 2011 vintage. It is a blend of 90% Grenache (sourced from 70-year-old vines) and 10% Mourvèdre (from 50-year-old vines). The Grenache is situated on the stony Piedlong plateau (full of galets roul s) in the heart of the Ch teauneuf appellation, north of the village and the highest point in the production area (128m). The Mourv dre comes from the sandy Pignan lieu-dit, east of Piedlong. The wine is aged for 20 months in French oak foudres and there is no filtration or fining. This is a classic Brunier wine with the mineral expression dominating the character although there is plenty of richness and depth too.
