07 Sep New Rhone Blend from Puech Haut!
One of our favorite producers is back with another great Rhone style blend from the Languedoc! La Closerie du Pic follows on the heels of several other high scoring releases from this winery over the past couple of years. The lean toward a fairly ripe style of wine, unafraid to take advantage of the more Mediterranean climate in Languedoc. These wines are always fresh and pure and will reward again and again.
2014 Chateau Puech Haut “La Closerie du Pic,” Pic Saint Loup, Languedoc
On Sale $24.99
Possibly a small step back from the rock star 2013, the 2014 La Closerie du Pic (same blend/elevage) offers beautiful purity and suppleness in its black raspberry and chocolate-laced aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, rounded and textured, with sweet tannin and a voluptuous, fruit forward style, it too should drink nicely on release.
