"Light bright orange. Nervy and precise on the nose and palate, displaying orange zest and strawberry qualities and a subtle honeysuckle flourish. Silky and open-knit, offering good heft as well as energy. Finishes smooth and broad, displaying good cling and a lingering suggestion of juicy red berries." - Josh Raynolds - Vinous
"Les Vignerons du Pic are a collective of winemakers from the villages of Assas, Baillargues, Claret and Saint-Gély-du Fesc. Sharing a winery in Pic St. Loup, each bottles independently under their own label.
The soils in this area are truly diverse from one parcel to another: hard and soft limestone, dolomite, marl and limestone boulders are predominant on the Mediterranean and the vineyards enjoy a median altitude of 150 m. To the east is the Rhône, Roussillon to the West and the Mediterranean sea constitutes the southern border. This region is considered the cradle of French viticulture dating back to the Romans who introduced vines between 500-600 years B.C.
Adequate moisture coupled with hot days and cold nights make for ideal ripening conditions for the Syrah grape as well as the dominant red Rhône varietals Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault and Carignan." - Importer
