"A fabulous rose that’s perfect for hot summer day quaffing (I know, as I go through more than a case every year), the 2013 Coteaux du Languedoc Prestige Rose is a direct press of 70% Grenache and 30% Cinsault aged all in stainless steel vats. Very light pink in color, it gives up fresh, crisp aromas of rose petal, white peach and hints of melon in its medium-bodied, clean, elegant and hard-to-resist personality. ... read more

Chateau Puech Haut

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.

EMPIRE STAFF REVIEW

The perfect summer wine!

"After your first glass, you'll quickly realize that buying just one bottle isn't enough for this impressive selection out of Languedoc. The nose reveals hints of spring flowers and strawberries, and the palate explodes with peaches and green apples. This Rose is so clean and easy drinking, I can't picture a better bottle to keep on hand once spring and summer arrive."

Drinkable and lovely

"What a balanced, calm and lovely wine. Perfect for the deck on a summer night"
