"Still not in bottle (it will be in bottle by the time you read this), the 2013 Coteaux du Languedoc la Closerie du Pic is an incredible looking barrel sample that's made from equal parts Syrah and Grenache, with the Syrah aged in barrel (some new) and the Grenache in concrete tank. It exhibits terrific amounts of cassis and black raspberry fruit to go with additional notes of pepper, smoked meats, violets and crushed rock. Full-bodied, beautifully pure, layered and elegant, yet rich and textured, it should drink nicely on release, yet also evolve gracefully.

Owned by Gerard Bru, Chateau Puech-Haut lies just outside the village of Saint Drezery, located to the northeast of Montpellier. The estate covers over 100 hectare and they receive consulting advise from Philippe Cambie. While they opted to not produce their limited production cuvees in 2013, they will in 2014, which is a solid vintage for the estate, and this region of the Languedoc. The style here is ripe, yet the wines have beautiful purity and plenty of freshness. In addition, the tannin quality is superb, and the wines are always a joy to drink. This is easily one of my favorite estates from the south of France."~Jeb Dunnuck

Chateau Puech Haut - I've been drinking their "wines" for quite a while and they really pay attention to quality. Even if I can't pronounce "Puech" or Push?

Very good QPR - Mature for its age and exhibiting the Pic St. Loup characteristics I came to appreciate with the 2001 Domain de l'Hortus wines.

Found it a bit thin - Was good, but not as meaty as I would have liked.
