Pique Russe 2013

£14.16

Pique Russe is the name of the fields, the name of the producer and the name of this wonderful wine.  Made in small quantities using traditional methods Pique Russe has a strong following and is growing in reputation, particularly in the Parisian restaurants where most of the production ends up.  A fine, fruity wine that can be drunk now or in years to come and is recommended for those you care for the most! See the partner notes for information on the 2014 and 2015 harvests and their implication on both Le Temps Volé and its sister wine Pique Russe.  This is the 2013 harvest released 2015 and is every bit as good as the 2011.
