Piuze, Patrick

Only the second vintage of this bottling, the Grand Vallée is from the Les Pargues vineyard, considered a top site by the monks. Piuze treats this wine like his 1er or Grand Cru sites and vinifies and ages in neutral oak.

(89-91) points
"(from vines in Les Pargues, which Piuze says were wiped out by frost and hail in the spring of 2016): High-pitched aromas of lemon zest and brown spices. Nicely concentrated and vibrant, with the lemon and spice flavors showing invigorating salinity and stony grip. Finishes fresh and long, with noteworthy tension. The most promising of these village wines in 2015."
