Tasting Notes

Previous vintages were sold as Pic Saint Loup, but I suppose production of the 2019 Languedoc Le Rosé has expanded. It's still a blend of 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 10% Cinsault, with a medium-pink hue in the glass and attractive aromas of cherries, pineapple and grapefruit. It's full-bodied for a rosé—sitting at 14+% alcohol and showing some serious ripeness and weight on the palate—but it remains refreshing and lively on the citrusy finish.
