    100% Grenache from Pignan. Mounier himself calls the the Les Amoureuses, reference to the elegant 1er cru from Chambolle in Burgundy. The wines from this area are perhaps the most balanced and finessed in all of Chateauneuf, the truest expression of the ''pinot of the south'' that Grenache can indeed be.. Sourced exclusively from the Pignan Lieu Dit, right next to Rayas. Pignan is Mounier's passion. It's the first vineyard he bought. North facing/angled (most of CNDP vineyards are flat as a pancake) it's exposed most importantly to the Mistral, the famous cooling winds of the region. This helps keep the grapes/wine elegant. The soil isn't the typical Galet (big pudding stones) in fact it's more sandy with bits of what he called Rolling Stones, smaller pieces. Same tehcniques as Omnia but aged for 3 years NO racking/sulphur in exclusively 500ltr demi muds.
