Domaine de Piaugier "La Grange de Piaugier" Côtes du Rhône '16

The Rhône Valley always impresses us with quality that overdelivers when considering the value of wines, like Domaine de Piaugier's Côte du Rhône "La Grange." Winemaker Jean-Marc Autran has a delicate hand in the winery, as to not over extract and over compensate on a wine, creating much finesse and elegance in result. This is not an easy task in this region! But before we even get to the winery, Autran wisely accumulated plots from all over the Southern Rhône, exposing a variety of soil types from clay to sand to limestone to even chalk and gravel, to be paired with the supreme Grenache, and other typical Rhône varietals. With all of these variables, the wines can only be expected to deliver nothing less than character and precision.

The 2016 Côtes du Rhône “La Grange de Piaugier” is composed of a blend of primarily Grenache, paired with smaller percentages of Syrah, Cinsault and Carignan. The wine is made from hand-harvested fruit, fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged for six months in concrete tanks prior to bottling. Notes are reminiscent markers of the terroir of this region, with a bouquet of raspberries, garrigue, woodsmoke, a touch of roasted meats. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and full of ripe red fruit, with just a touch of backend tannin, lovely mineral drive and very good balance and grip on the long and spicy finish.
