Clos Marie Coteaux du Languedoc Pic Saint Loup Cuvee Simon 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

WINE: "45% Grenache, 45% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre. This is very serious wine. Firm, ripe tannins are coated with thick viscosity and dark berry and plum fruit. Voluptuous and drinkable now, but would benefit from 3-5 years of age. Excellent tension and spark from a great vintage in the Languedoc." "Christophe Peyrus took over his family’s vineyards in 1991. He has sought council with some of the greatest winemakers in France (Didier Dagueneau, Clos Rougeard, Grange des Peeres, etc) and now the French wine press considers his winery to be at the top of the appellation. The 20 hectare property is situated north of Montpellier and the vineyards are scattered around the terraces that rise from the village up to the sharp cliffs that form part of the plateau of the Hortus mountain. The soils are clay and chalky limestone, and all of the vineyards are continuously plowed to force the vines’ roots to seek nourishment deep down in the limestone bedrock. The domaine has been farmed using biodynamic principles since 2000, and no pesticides or herbicides have ever been used. Harvested by hand, yields for the various cuvées vary between 15-35 Hl/Ha. This is one of the great domaines of the Languedoc and probably the most complex and age-worthy of Pic St. Loup." -Importer
