Pierre Henri Morel Chateauneuf du Pape Lieu Dit Pignan 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2009 Pierre-Henri Morel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Pignan is 100% Grenache (all destemmed and aged in demi-muid) that sees a very traditional elevage, with 12 months in concrete tank. Showing a superb bouquet (which is common from this lieu-dit) of sweet kirsch, blackberry, licorice, honey water, and mint/underbrush like qualities, the wine boasts an outstanding palate and mouth-feel with superb balance, a concentrated, rich texture, and fine tannin on the finish.

It’s round and creamy in texture, with a long finish framed in elegant, soft tannins....91" WE 10/12
