Piedlong rouge 2016
91-93. (50% whole clusters; aged for a year in concrete vats followed by another year in neutral oak foudres) Deep ruby-red. Assertive red fruit preserve and floral aromas, along with garrigue and spice notes that build steadily in the glass. Juicy and expansive on the palate, offering sweet black raspberry and cherry flavors and a hint of spicecake. Shows a hint of licorice on an impressively long, floral-tinged finish that’s given shape by fine-grained tannins.
