Villa Blanche Pays d’Herault Piquepoul Noir 2016

Other Red from France - Other
Review Date : 25-May-2018
Dark, ruby-red colour with some depth, lighter on the rim with slight purple hues. The nose is softly fresh with aromas of dark-red cherry and berry fruit along with notes of dark raspberries, and an amalgam of spices, florals and liquorice. The aromatics build with soft density and concentration. Medium-bodied, the palate has soft and gently rich, vibrant fruit flavours of dark-red cherries and berries with subtle, savoury spice, herb and floral nuances. The fruit is sweet and juicy, and is underlined by fine, grainy structure with balancing fresh acidity. This has good energy and drive, and carries to a full-fruited and structured finish. This is a gently rich and juicy Piquepoul Noir with dark cherry and raspberry flavours with subtle savoury elements on a well-balanced and structured palate. Serve with poultry and pork over the next 5-6+ years. The first vintage of a Piquepoul Noir, destemmed and fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in cement vats. 17.5+/20 May 2018 RRP $19.99
