Château Puech-Haut Le Prestige Coteaux du Languedoc Saint-Drézéry Grenache Syrah 2011

$24.99

A phenomenal value discovery from France's Languedoc region.  A delicious blend of Grenache and Syrah.  Hurry while our small allocation lasts. 91 Points Robert Parker:  "A sensational offering from proprietor Gerard Bru, the 2011 Prestige is the estate’s least expensive wine. Readers may remember the fabulous review the 2010 Prestige received, and the 2011 is just as special. With Bru’s top Reserve wine selling for nearly $100 a bottle, the Prestige cuvee is an outstanding value. Interestingly, Bru has had three of the greatest winemaking consultants on Planet Earth working for him, first Michel Rolland, followed by Claude Gros and now Philippe Cambie. A blend of 60-75-year-old vine Grenache (55%) and 40-year old Syrah (45%), all grown on limestone soils dominated by the famous large rocks (galets roules) also found in parts of Chateauneuf du Pape. The wine is aged in concrete tanks prior to being bottled unfiltered. Some of the vineyards are farmed organically and others biodynamically. The wine exhibits a tremendous perfume of sweet raspberries, spring flowers, forest floor, truffles and lavender as well as a beautiful texture, a full-bodied mouthfeel, stunning velvety tannins and purity, and a long finish. This is the “real deal.” Drink it over the next 4-6 years."

Solid value. Pretty straightforward BDX blend. Nothing to write home about but fine.

Dark berry and warm spice aroma. Ripe ripe raspberry tartness. Definite spice finish. Much bigger alcohol than expected for this style of wine (15 %). A touch of forest floor. Smooth tannins though.

Full bouquet of red plum and touch of anise and leather. Smooth on the palette with notes if blackberry and cherry.
