Pignier A Table Avec Leandre 2020


In Stock

“The back label of the current 2020 A Table Avec Léandre now mentions 14 old varieties (it used to be 11) all picked and fermented together with indigenous yeasts in a concrete egg, where it matured for 14 months. It’s surprisingly creamy, like it had aged in barrel and even gone through malolactic in wood, but that wasn’t the case. It’s ripe despite keeping the alcohol level around the usual 13% and quite primary and fruit driven and with some earthy, slightly dusty tannins. Better with some more time in bottle and with food. Drink: 2024-2028. 91 points

I didn’t have the chance to visit Domaine Pignier this time, but I found two vintages of their most characterful red to taste…”
