La Pigna - Châteauneuf-du-Pape (2013 / 13,5%) with Zalto Bordeaux
Sometimes a wine can take you far far away and let you have a #tbt. This one makes it like that and just reminded me the South France tour and the visits to Châteauneuf-du-Pape domaines which we have been last year. Most amazing and unforgettable specialities of the terroir are the heterogeneous soil and the surface covered with round/rolling stones which is called “galets”. 🍷 🍇 🍷
What about the wine? It’s a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Counoise. Deep ruby colour. On the nose and on the palate it has a rich and a wide aroma profile with mature red forest fruits, plum, blackberry and from background you have tobacco and earthy notes. Medium plus body supported by medium plus rounded tannins and medium acidity and alcohol. And you will have a long, rich finish.
