Chateau Puech-Haut Bosc Negre 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Plum preserves and chocolate laced with bay and brown spices make for a head-turning nose, and are joined by roasted red meat character on a sumptuous, fine-grained, yet persistently juicy palate...There is a sense of freshness as well as transparency to carnal and stonily mineral elements to the rich fruit on display here. And whereas a certain superficial note of toasted oak also crept into the aforementioned bottlings, here any such impression is integrated to the point of background enhancement, and the wine finishes with sappy, energetic persistence, without any impression of heat or drying...93" WA

Château Puech-Haut is a biodynamically farmed estate in the Languedoc in southern France. Gerald Bru oversees production, with many important winemakers over the years including Michel Rolland, Claude Gros and Phillipe Cambie. Many of the grapes are sourced from older vines, some 60-75 years old, resulting in very concentrated and structured flavors. The fruit for the wines was originally sold to other winemakers, then Puech-Haut began producing wine under its own label starting in 1996. The “Cuvée Prestige” is its most successful release, from Syrah and Grenache, aged in concrete tanks (the Syrah spends a small amount of time in oak to give it some punctuation). Others include the “Bosc Negre,” which is made of 100% Mourvedre and the all-Grenache “Quercus.”  Read less
