2015 Pic Saint-Loup Rouge “Carra”

Château de Lascaux

2015 Pic Saint-Loup Rouge “Carra” Château de Lascaux - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $19.95

Lascaux does not refer to the famous cave paintings of the Dordogne; rather, it alludes to the limestone in the vineyards of this esteemed Languedoc estate. The horse-like figure that adorns the label is rather misleading in this sense—could the image have been chosen because the winemaker’s last name is “Cavalier”? Who knows. Regardless, Carra features Syrah and Grenache grown in Lascaux limestone, a deep and gallant red with cavalierly tendencies on the palate. –Anthony Lynch
