2013 Pic Saint Loup Rouge “Sainte Agnès”

Ermitage du Pic Saint Loup

2013 Pic Saint Loup Rouge “Sainte Agnès” Ermitage du Pic Saint Loup - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $25.00

If the Languedoc were classified like Burgundy, Pic Saint Loup would be one of its more esteemed villages, perhaps Gevrey, and Sainte Agnès would be its grand cru. This outstanding vineyard climbs rocky white limestone toward the summit of the Pic, the majestic outcrop that dominates the region’s landscape. Significant altitude and the meager layer of topsoil imbue this cuvée with focus, nerve, and verve—an upper-slope gem rampant with savory, smoky Syrah tones, garrigue, and succulent raspberry. For a wine that will age like a grand cru, the value is outstanding. —Anthony Lynch
