Chateau Puech-Haut Prestige Coteaux du Languedoc 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2013 Coteaux du Languedoc Prestige (which was already in bottle at the time of this tasting) is a blend of 55% Grenache and 45% Syrah aged all in concrete tank. Fresh, elegant and thrillingly pure, with first rate aromas of blackberry, fresh plum, licorice and ground herbs, it is decidedly sexy and forward, yet stays perfectly balanced, with juicy acidity and fine tannin on the finish. Enjoy this superb value over the coming 4-5 years (although it will evolve longer)...93" 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
