Chateau Puech Haut la Closerie du Pic 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

"Even better, and one of the best values I’ve tasted in a long, long time, the 2013 Coteaux du Languedoc La Closerie du Pic is a new cuvee that’s made for importer Eric Solomon. Coming all from the Pic Saint Loup region and a blend of equal parts Syrah and Grenache vinified all in concrete tank (the Syrah is then aged 12 months in new and one-year-old barrels), it offers extraordinary aromas of violets, spring flowers, creme de cassis and licorice in a full-bodied, voluptuous and massively textured package. While a big wine, it carries itself beautifully and has fantastic freshness, fine tannin and a seamless finish that keeps you coming back to the glass. Count me a fan, and at the price, it should not be missed!...93-96" WA 02/14

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
