"Full-bodied yet silky, elegant and positively delicate, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Grenache de Pierre looks to be another outstanding vintage for this wine, drawn from old vines planted in the lieux-dits of La Crau and Pignan on sandy soils. Strawberry and raspberry fruit are almost crystalline-pure but tinged with hints of complex garrigue and dried herbs on the lacy, fine finish."

"The 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenaches de Pierre is, as always, more elegant and seamless compared to the flamboyant Les Gallimardes cuvée. Spring flowers, graphite, black raspberries, and loads of sandy, loamy soil notes all flow to a medium to full-bodied, incredibly elegant red that has fine, fine tannin and a great finish. It’s going to put on weight over the course of its élevage and is going to benefit from short-term cellaring."
