ADD

Speaking of great terroirs… Piedlong, the highest parcel of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, may be the best there is for Grenache. This cuvée is really a showcase for Grenache at its finest: while there’s plenty of the brawn and masculinity one would expect, with this terroir it’s “on the rocks,” so to speak, cool, drinkable, bright, and lively. There’s also a splash of Mourvèdre in there, from the neighboring Pignan parcel, which contributes what I’ve heard referred to as the “venison touch.” –Chris Santini
