2019 Châteauneuf-du-Pape “Piedlong”

Famille Brunier
Discount Eligible $65.00
SOLD OUT

Having bought the Piedlong parcel, the highest in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, in 1986, the Bruniers spent over two decades farming and blending the Grenache grown here before they decided it showed a distinct and enchanting character that merited its own bottling. Since that inaugural 2011 vintage, Piedlong has continued to prove them right, yielding a gorgeous Châteauneuf that tends to be ready to dive into a little earlier than the Bruniers’ La Crau bottling. At once robust, succulent, and elegant, this red offers immediate pleasure and age-worthy promise.

Inspiring Thirst

A good doctor prescribed the wine of Nuits-Saint-Georges to the Sun King, Louis XIV, when he suffered an unknown maladie. When the king’s health was restored the tasty remedy enjoyed a vogue at court. Lord, send me a doctor like that!
