Chateau Puech-Haut Rose Cuvee Prestige Coteaux de Languedoc Premier 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

91+ Points, Zachys Buying Team: “The iconic, frosted glass bottle, with its deceptively light salmon colored juice, has become a signature at Zachys and remains one of our best-selling rosé. This is one of the fuller, fleshier expressions we have tasted from the 2016 vintage – it drinks more like Provence, with its mouthwatering and tongue-staining acidity and fruit that lingers for a marathon finish. Expect an explosion of strawberries, wild berries, cherries, honey dew melon, orange blossoms, and minerality. There is a rich peach-like texture to accompany the wine’s energy and salinity begging for grilled shrimp on the patio with good friends and family.“

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
