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.”– Description from hinaualan

Château Puech-Haut on Snooth
I must admit, my first surprise with this wine was the color, given the light color on the cork, I was expecting this to be a lighter style wine, but the color in the glass was a deep purple, transitioning to a bright ruby along the edges. The nose was a wonderful blend of leather, black currant, ripe berries, rose petals and moss. The taste w... Read More
Finally, I get to find out how the other half lives.... The smell is AMAZING. Unlike any wine I've ever experienced (as I do not drink $100+ bottles from France). All I can say is, what incredible juice! Tastes bone dry and mineraly, but smells overflowingly wet and juicy and floral. The mind registers both and says "YUM!" I'd give it 93-95 ... Read More
