Château Puech-Haut, Château Lavabre’s parent producer, is a secret star of Languedoc near the region of Pic-St-Loup, founded by Gerard Bru. Located 20 kilometres North East of Montpellier, the terroir of Puech-Haut extends over 250 hectares for a difference in height oscillating between 50 and 150 meters above sea level. The combination of the Mediterranean climate and mixture of clay and limestone soils topped with galet pebbles, help create a truly impressive range of superb value French Country wines.
Vibrant purple color is followed by sensational notes of black raspberries, toasted spice, cassis and even a hint of bacon fat. With medium to full-bodied richness, a seamless texture, integrated acidity and a blockbuster finish, drink this straight up fabulous Pic St Loup anytime over the coming 7-8 years.
