2015 Chateau Puech-Haut "La Closerie du Pic" Coteaux du Languedoc Pic Saint Loup

SKU #1327022 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Just bottled three weeks ago, the 2015 Pic Saint Loup La Closerie Du Pic is certainly one of the gems in this terrific vintage. Its vibrant purple color is followed by sensational notes of black raspberries, toasted spice, cassis and even a hint of bacon fat. With medium to full-bodied richness, a seamless texture, integrated acidity and a blockbuster finish, drink this straight up fabulous Pic Saint Loup anytime over the coming 7-8 years. Hats off to the team at Puech-Haut, and consultant Philippe Cambie, for this sensational wine! (JD)  (4/2017)

Languedoc aficionados take note: the 2015 Closerie is a remarkably delicious wine with rich, layered fruit and graceful power.The Closerie empitomizes the “new world style” of wines currently streaming from the Languedoc, where recent years have seen tremendous advances in winemaking and quality. This is blend of Grenache aged in concrete and Syrah aged in both new and 2nd-fill French barriques. The result is a silky wine with a concentration of dark fruit flavors, with a mild, tasteful oak influence. Smooth and accessible, yet still bold, this is a must have for those who love powerful reds from Southwest France.

The 2015 Chateau Puech-Haut "La Closerie du Pic" Coteaux du Languedoc Pic Saint Loup is a limpid red in the glass with enticing aromas of red cherry, raspberry, minerals and spice. The palate is a complex offering of red fruits, spice notes, crushed rocks and the slightest hint of oak. There’s great energy and grace to this wine as it slowly unwinds on the palate. A great value, this is one of the best offerings from the Languedoc I have tasted this year.
Top Value! Drink from 2017 to 2022

We've had a lot of stellar Rhone-inspired French reds of late that I've really enjoyed, but this has quickly become my favorite. Puech Haut's Closerie du Pic could easily sub in for a $60 bottle of top vintage, highly rated Chateaneuf in a blind tasting. There's great focus, purity, minerality, and depth here even after the cork is just pulled, but it evolves beautifully in the glass and deserves a short decant at this stage of the game. This is one that anybody who enjoys a beautiful bottle of Rhone-inspired wine should grab hold of.

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
