Château Puech Haut Saint Drézéry Le Prestige 2013 AOP Languedoc, France

My Rating 83 Points.   

Price $20.

 

Deep purple in color with a short purple rim.

Earthy nose of blueberries, black currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark coffee, pencil lead, green pepper, black tea, green vegetables, dirt, forest floor, black pepper and spices.

Medium bodied with medium acidity and long long legs.

Dry and earthy on the palate with blackberries, black currants, earth, wood, licorice, spices, forest floor, green pepper, vegetables, vinaigrette, herbs, pencil lead, black pepper and leather.

Medium finish with round tannins.

This is a young Syrah blend from Languedoc. Very earthy with lots of green notes. Still unbalanced but has nice complexity. A good food wine.

Needs 2 hours to open up properly and show some tannins. Needs another 3 years in the bottle to mature.

I paired it with soft and hard cheeses.

I’ll need to leave some aside for a day and see how it develops…

15% alcohol by volume.
