Domaine Piron & Lafont Chénas Quartz 2006

External Review by Morrell & Company:

Named after a thread of quartz that runs through the granitic soil and from which the wine gets its mineral character, the Chenas "Quartz" is a wine of surprising power coupled with exceptional beauty. Deep ruby in color, aromatically inviting with floral notes and oodles of black cherry, raspberry and currant delivered with an extraordinary palate texture as only low-yielding, low tannin Gamay can lend a wine. This is a well-built Beaujolais possessing the structure to improve over time.
