Description

"All of the wines come from de-stemmed fruit at the property. For the whites, there is heavy battonage as they rest on their fine lies. The reds undergo a 15-25 day maceration. Some of the wines are aged in tank and released quite early, while the 'Grand Cuvees' at the property pass into oak, with some portion of that being new wood. As the wines are almost all blended, all of the varietals are vinified separately before the final assemblage. Jean Orliac is considered the 'father' of the Pic St. Loup. As one of the original founders of the wine-growing region, Jean has fought for lower yields in the zone and pressed for full AOC status based on the particular microclimate in the area that is so unique to the tiny corner of the Languedoc. He has also been quite instrumental in helping other growers understand the varietals that thrive in the area, most importantly, Mourvedre. This estate continues to be a quality leader and the benchmark property of this beautiful area! 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache, 10% Carignan, 30 day fermentation in concrete tanks, 13 months in French oak, 50% new. This wine is produced from vineyards in the Saint- Jean-de-Bueges zone just outside of the Pic St. Loup from extremely low yields in very steep hillsides." -Importer
