Pierre-Henry MorelChâteauneuf-du-PapeLieu-dit Pignan is entirely composed of Grenache from a plot on the North of the appellation. The 2010 Lieu-dit Pignan shows an intense purple red colour. On the nose, one can detect a bouquet of red berry aromas: cherry, raspberry,wild strawberry mixed with hints of liquorice and cedar. This wine is fat and powerful on the palate. It gives way to fine tannins and great minerality.

Wine Advocate-Parker : From sandy soils, the deep ruby/purple-colored, medium to full-bodied 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Lieu-Dit Pignan (100% Grenache) possesses beautiful notes of black cherries, jammy strawberries, kirsch, licorice and spring flowers. Similar to a very good vintage of Rayas, it should drink nicely for 10-12+ years.
