Food Pairings for Chateau Puech-Haut Cante Lebre
"Among several wines new to their line-up, Puech-Haut’s 2009 Coteaux du Languedoc Saint-Drezery Cante Lebre – a Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre blend – reflects an especially warm as well as galets roules- iron- and clay-rich section of the estate’s holdings by revealing a personality that I am sure would strike many tasters as Chateauneuf-like even if Chateauneuf guru Philippe Cambie had not begun calling the shots here with this vintage and somebody else had instead. Sandalwood; black raspberry, cherry and plum confiture; along with a whiff of leather, combine in a heady aromatic and sumptuously rich palate display. Resin and vanilla notes as well as a catch of tannin can be attributed to the extent of new wood in which the Syrah and Mourvedre portions of this resided. Cocoa powder and marzipan add to the confectionary aspect of this cuvee in a faintly warm finish (from 15% alcohol) whose confitured berries are sweetly persistent yet whose tannins left me chewing air rather than salivating...90" WA 08/11
