The unique rock outcropping of Pic Saint Loup creates wines that have both intense fruit and freshness thanks to the limestone and mineral component. This tasty blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre is a perfect example of achieving this unique balance. Dark and juicy red berry fruit with a peppery spice note that lingers along with dried herbs and a hint of grip at the end. Aged in concrete vats. Biodynamic.
The underrated Pic Saint Loup appellation has all the makings of a great terroir: Mediterranean climate, rocky limestone soils, and cool, high-altitude vineyard sites. Brothers Pierre, Jean-Marc, and Xavier Ravaille have made it their mission to harness this potential since founding Ermitage du Pic Saint Loup in 1992. They eschew herbicides in their vineyards, choosing instead to plow the soils and treat with biodynamic plant preparations. The focus is on a pure and natural expression of place, so fermentations are spontaneous, aging takes place in used foudres and barriques, and the wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered. This smoky, chewy blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre is a great example of what Pic Saint Loup can achieve in the right hands.
