Chateau Puech-Haut Coteaux du Languedoc Saint Drezery Bosc Negre 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points David Schildknecht (Wine Advocate): ...all-Mourvedre...

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.

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
