Puech-Haut Coteaux du Languedoc Saint-Drezery Quercus 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

95 points Rhone Report: ...jaw dropping good, 100% Grenache... Fermented with stems and seeing no oak whatsoever, it represents a naked expression of pure Grenache and offers up an exuberantly sweet, heady array of kirsch and strawberry liqueur, spice-box, sappy wild herbs, and red licorice to go with a seamless, elegant, and incredibly polished mouth feel. Ripe, voluptuous, and yet almost weightless on the palate, with layers of sweet fruit, ripe tannin, and a clean, focused finish... (Mar 2013)

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
