2016 Pic Saint Loup Rosé

Ermitage du Pic Saint Loup

2016 Pic Saint Loup Rosé Ermitage du Pic Saint Loup - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $16.00

Pic Saint Loup has already proven its worth as a great terroir  for red wines—one needs only taste the smoky, savory rouges from the Ravaille brothers of Ermitage du Pic Saint Loup to realize the potential here. Given the excellent growing conditions, with high altitude, rocky vineyards on the slopes leading up to the craggy summit of the Pic, it is only natural that the site lends itself to fine rosés, too. Factor in biodynamic farming and a natural vinification, and you have a formula for success. There is a mouth-watering freshness and tonicity that brings to mind the abundant limestone in the vineyards, while the wine is fleshy and vinous on the palate—the Ravailles do not block the malolactic fermentation, resulting in additional depth and persistence. It's hard to find greater value in a terroir-driven rosé like this. –Anthony Lynch
