SKU #1332531 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark 10 hectares of elevated Châteauneuf-du-Pape, this is an hommage to Grenache with just a hatful of Mourvèdre. Ripe raspberry and red plum pastry aromas. Super silky, plush and layered. Extremely impressive. Shows fluidity and balance, density and lightness. 50% stalks (crushed). Inner quote mark (8/2017)

93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Mourvèdre, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Piedlong is gorgeous, and I’d certainly be happy to drink a bottle. Blackcurrants, kirsch, seaweed, tapenade, and shitake notes all flow to a ripe, supple, sexy red that has fine tannin, solid depth, and a great finish. It shows the elegant style of the vintage Inner quote mark (10/2017)

91-93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright violet. Highly perfumed red fruit liqueur, potpourri, licorice and white pepper scents show impressive clarity and vivacity. Sappy, seamless and precise on the palate, offering intense raspberry and floral pastille flavors and a touch of candied lavender. Finishes on a bright mineral note, displaying excellent focus, subtle tannins and emphatic, floral-driven tenacity. This is quite an elegant example of the vintage. (JR) Inner quote mark (3/2017)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Piedlong has been made since 2011. It's 90% Grenache and 10% Mourvèdre, drawn from the Piedlong and Pignan lieux-dits. With 50% whole clusters, it's quite floral upfront but also boasts plenty of cherry fruit and cinnamon. It's full-bodied and creamy in texture, ending on a long, peppery note. (JC) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark The Brunier brothers, of the domaines Vieux Télégraphe and La Roquète in Châteauneuf, base this wine on fruit off 70-year-old grenache vines in the Piedlong lieu-dit, a high plateau paved with galets. The intensity of their fruit reads clearly in this wine’s liqueur-like berry flavors, bright, sweet and as clear as the sound of a bell. Underneath, there’s a vein of leather and oolong tea, evidence of the ten percent mourvèdre in the blend, grown in the sandy soils of Pignan. It’s Châteauneuf played at full volume, needing time in the cellar or a thick-cut steak to tame it. Inner quote mark (10/2018)

This wine has the most amazing nose! Aromas of licorice, marzipan, Asian spice and subtle red fruit notes slowly rise from the glass. The palate is definitely old-world with flavors of blood orange, fennel, beef bouillon and exotic spice notes. Sinewy with sexy tannins this multi-layered beauty is already showing secondary complexity in a ready to drink package. This wine is straight out-delicious and perfect for the wine enthusiast looking for an old-world Chateauneuf!
Drink from 2020 to 2032
