Product description

"Puech-Haut’s new, all-Mourvedre bottling 2009 Coteaux du Languedoc Saint-Drezery Bosc Negre strikes me as supporting the reasonable hypothesis that this grape is especially well-suited to an expressive performance if one’s going to let one’s fruit ascend to 15% alcohol. Plum preserves and chocolate laced with bay and brown spices make for a head-turning nose, and are joined by roasted red meat character on a sumptuous, fine-grained, yet persistently juicy palate. Whereas the corresponding Recantou and Cante Lebre bottlings tended toward the confectionary, there is a sense of freshness as well as transparency to carnal and stonily mineral elements to the rich fruit on display here."
