Domaine Piron-Lameloise Chénas Quartz

Domaine Piron-Lameloise Chénas Quartz 2014

Beaujolais, Burgundy, FranceTasted four years along, and this Chénas is as alluring as ever. Dominique Piron is the 14th generation winemaker at the family estate. There’s an earthy reductive kiss that opens this wine, before plunging into a stony, mineral slurry of plum, red currant, flushing red florals, red licorice, and rafts of fine spicing that linger on the finish. Tannins are tight and fine, and acidity is high. This wine’s tight structure has served it well; showing beautifully now, and still with time to go.Tasted: 17 August 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 29.99 BCLS Producer: Domaine Piron-LameloiseDistributors: Red Dog
