Chateau Puech-Haut Bosc Negre 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

92-94 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Languedoc Saint Drezery Bosc Negre is the Mourvèdre-dominated wine from Puech Haut and it was raised in 100% new French oak, mostly new Burgundy barrels. It possesses fabulous purity as well as lots of blueberry, blackberry, licorice, crushed rock and peppery herbs. While it was raised in new oak, it’s doesn’t show a hint of it, and offers notable freshness, a big, full-bodied mouthfeel and ripe tannin. It needs 2-3 years of cellaring and will keep through 2029." 04/16

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
