Rhone Report 90
"A beautiful, very Provencal Rose thats an even split of Grenache and Cinsault, the 2011 Cuvee Prestige Rose is incredibly light in color, with only hints of pink and salmon showing. Nevertheless, its certainly not light on flavor and possesses loads of sweet red cherries, red currant, and rose petal that carry into a medium-bodied, racy wine that has excellent fruit, a light, clean texture, and a saline, mineral slant on the finish. ... read more

Enjoy bottles over the coming year."

International Wine Report 90
"The Chateau Puech-Haut Coteaux du Languedoc Saint-Drezery Rose is really pretty and fresh with notes of cherries and strawberry with banana peel, floral, stony minerals, and some grapefruit. This has vibrant acidy and a rich texture. Everything finishes up really clean and crisp. A great Rose."


"Chateau Puech Haut occupies 170 hectares including 100 hectares of vines in Saint-Drezery, a small village 15 km northeast of Montpellier, in the foothills of the Cevennes and belongs to the AOC Coteause du Langedoc. In Provence, a 'Puech' means a small hill (or mountain), a 'Puech Haut' is a hill higher than the others. This position, 'on a hill higher than the others', is conducive to exceptional drainage for the vineyards. The clay and limestone soil is composed of boulders brought by the Rhone in the Quaternary and its plots reside on hillsides protected from excessive temperatures by the nearby Mediterranean Sea and winds including the Mistral, the north wine pervasive in the region."

View all from Chateau Puech Haut
Chateau Puech HautOne only needs to glance briefly through the notes of Jancis Robinson, Robert Parker, Andrew Jefford and David Schildknecht (among many others) to discover their love affair with the Languedoc. And by that, we mean head-over-heels, butterflies-in-the-stomach kind of love. We have had affection for the region since the humble beginnings of European Cellars when our motto was "unknown...and unsold" – an affection that remains as exciting to us today as it did 25 years ago.

Château Puech-Haut has been on the critic's radar for some time – which makes sense since the property has employed Michel Rolland, Claude Gros and now Philippe Cambie as consulting enologist. Visionary owner Gérard Bru spares no expense in his quest for excellence. Located quite close to Pic Saint-Loup, in Saint-Drézéry, Puech-Haut is near the far western border of the Rhône valley and benefits from both its proximity to the Mediterranean and the rugged, mountainous interior of France. There are slightly over 50 hectares planted with Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault, Carignan, Viognier, Marsanne, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Carignan Blanc. The wines from Puech-Haut are rich and lush but also show the earthy and mineral character of the rocky clay-limestone soils of the region.
