An elegant and refined wine, much more about expression than power. Precise red fruits, spice and lovely tannins with a brilliant stony mineraility. Fresh, long and silky.

Mourvèdre 55%, Syrah 45%.

If the Languedoc had a classification system similar to Bordeaux, Chateau Puech-Haut would be a serious contender for First Growth classification. Widely admired as one of the regions' premier estates, Puech-Haut is located in Saint-Drézéry, about 12 miles North-East of Montpellier. Sitting close to the Pic Saint-Loup appellation (in which it also has vineyards), it benefits from the ancient rocky clay-limestone soils of the region, the mountainous terrain which provide both ideal aspects for the vineyards and altitude for cool nights, and the moderating influence of the nearby Mediterranean. A pioneering estate since its founding in 1981, it lavishes as much care on the winemaking process as it does on the sustainability of its organically managed vineyards.
