2014 Pic Saint Loup Rouge “Cupa Numismae”

Château La Roque

2014 Pic Saint Loup <i>Rouge</i> “Cupa Numismae” Château La Roque - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $25.00

This is perhaps the hardest-to-pronounce cuvée name in our entire portfolio; you can get it simply by asking us for the Cupa. And ask for it you should. Château La Roque does everything right, from certified biodynamics to horse plowing to natural winemaking, all done without making any noise about it. The Cupa is the estate’s top wine, its cream-of-the-crop, limited-production Syrah and Mourvèdre blend from vines on Roman-built terraces. It’s dense, noble, with grip and grit, the kind of cuvée that could generate a lot of awe and attention... and also a much higher price tag. That’s not, however, La Roque’s style; it’s about the wine, not the marketing. You’ll be glad to find this beauty in your glass. Enjoy. –Chris Santini
