Domaine Piron & Lameloise Chenas Quartz 2016
|Available in store:||Check availability|
The 2016 Piron Chenas Quartz is from the smallest Beaujolais Cru. Grown on a unique 22-acre parcel on a very steep East-facing slope, its granitic soils are covered with quartz crystals (hence the name) that give the wine its distinctive personality. The vineyard is co-owned by Domnique Piron and Christian Lameloise, whose family owned Lameloise restaurant in Burgundy (3*** Michelin). A mineral, balanced and complex wine with aromas of lilac, cherry, peony and peach, floral flavors are followed by elegant, round and dense tannins. The mouth finishes tense with almost salty nuances.
