2012 Domaine De La Roquete Chateauneuf Du Pape Piedlong

Inventory Available
2012 Domaine La Roquète Piedlong Châteauneuf-du-Pape:
A new wine that will now replace the L’Accent cuvee from Domaine la Roquète (and going forward, there will be no more red wine produced
from the la Roquète estate), the 2012 Piedlong Châteauneuf du Pape is a superb looking tank sample. Comprised of 90% Grenache and 10%
Mourvèdre and vinified all in wood tank, with 30% whole-cluster, it possesses medium to full-bodied richness, firm tannin and excellent purity,
with plenty of blackberry fruit, dried spice and licorice on the nose. Give it a couple years in the cellar and it should impress through 2024.
