Over the last 30 years, the Languedoc region in Southern France has been striving to break away from a not so glorious past. It is nowadays considered a treasure trove for wine and food lovers, thanks to a number of investors from France and around the world, who like the Romans did in their days, recognised the region's stunning potential. One of the many ventures is Chateau Puech Haut, located in the village of Saint Drezery, north east of the city of Montpellie. Their lighter coloured style of rosé is akin to what the French call "Vin Gris", usually enjoyed with Summer Mediteranean dishes like grilled fish, tian (a cold vegetable flan) and salads, but also as an aperitif with finger foods. Made as a "Rose de presse" (juice straight off the press), the grapes are pressed rather than macerated (as is the case in a "Rose de Saignee"). Chateau Puech Haut employ Grenache and Cinsault for this wine, which is fermented in thermo regulated stainless steel over twenty days to increase flavour intensity.
Translucent light salmon pink tinged colour with a watery hue. Intensely aromatic scents of raspberries, musk and strawberries burst out of the glass with subtle spice end notes. Delicious flavours of strawberries and musk fill the palate with some spice on the dry finish. Excellent concentration and textural feel. Long aftertaste of spicy cherries, raspberries and musk.
Drink over the next 1-2 years.
The entry-level Rosé is the 2015 Languedoc Cuvee Prestige Rose, and it continues to be a sensational value. Made from 60% Grenache and 40% Cinsault, it’s light pink color is followed by perfumed notes of strawberries, orange blossom and spring flowers. Juicy, clean and refreshing, yet with texture, buy a case of this.
