Southern France is rising to the top, and Chateau Puech-Haut is taking them there!

Known best for their excellent Rose and value “Prestige” red, Puech-Haut has graced the bins on the Zachys floor for years now. But it is the relatively new and extremely rare “Grand Cru” selections from the village of Saint Drezery that have caught our attention this time around. These easy-to-love, difficult-to-pronounce selections are richly decadent and fascinatingly complex blends of the traditional Rhone varietals Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre.

In his recent review of the Languedoc-Roussillon wine region, Jeb Dunnuck had nothing but great things to say about these fascinating and just plain AWESOME wines:

  • Bosc Negre 2009 – 95 points
    “…massive [yet] brilliantly balanced and light on its feet…notions of cassis, flowers, citrus blossom and orange peel…”
  • Cante Lebre 2009 – 96 points
    “Getting a big ‘wow’ in my notes…spectacular…a joy to drink and absolutely hard to resist. Count me a fan.”
  • Quercus 2009 – 95 points
    “…similarly styled on the palate, with a seamless, hedonistic profile that should put a smile on anyone’s face. Drinking beautifully now…”
  • Recantou 2009 – 95 points
    “…thrills with its decadence and richness…full-bodied and gorgeously textured…a superb, character-filled beauty…”

One of the highlight tastings of my more than two weeks spent in the Languedoc and Roussillon… Puech-Haut has employed the likes of Michel Rolland, Claude Gros, and now Philippe Cambie, to aid in the winemaking. To my palate, this estate is at the top of its game and the wines go from strength to strength, showing what can be achieved with low yields and a focus on making the best wine possible. In addition to incredible quality, the entire lineup is stacked with value. Unfortunately, the upper-tier efforts are made in small quantities and don’t see much distribution. In addition to the current releases, I was able to take a look back at some older vintages to see how these hold up. I'm more than happy with the showings and it reaffirms my belief that these, rich, concentrated efforts have no problem evolving gracefully for a number of years. Get them if you can! – Wine Advocate 4/14

While you’re grabbing your cases of Rose or Prestige Rouge, grab some of these bottles and see what has all of us so excited! Chateau Puech-Haut is proof that Southern France has some of the most thrilling and incredible wines for the price in the world today, and it has nowhere to go but up!

All My Best,
Andrew
