Puech-Haut Prestige Rouge

Saint-Drézéry, AOP Languedoc

After a cold and wet winter and a very wet spring, we had three weeks of rain in June.  This allowed the water reserves to recharge but it also resulted in a proliferation of late blight.  Fortunately for Puech Haut we were protected against the strong attacks of mildew.  This vintage will therefore be remembered for the extreme quality of the grapes harvested thanks to a very hot summer punctuated with regular rainfall, limited and short, a dry air and favorable temperatures with marked differences between day and night. This favorable climatic context made it possible to harvest grapes at their optimum maturity in most plots.  2018 has all the characteristics of a beautiful vintage in Languedoc.

Tasting Notes

Deep garnet color with notes of cherry and blackberries on the nose. The palate is full-bodied with dark fruits and chocolate and enveloped in a delicious finish with silky tannins.

20 km North East from Montpellier, Puech Haut’ soils spread out on 250 ha between 50 and 150 m height This terroir made of round pebbles on top of a 4 meters clay layer has a Mediterranean climate

The 2017 vintage was very difficult with frost and a spring heat wave followed by a dry summer.  The Languedoc has not been spared by the bad weather this year, and the harvest were two weeks ahead on average, with quantities falling sharply (lowest harvest of the last 15 years) but a quality to the rendez-vous.

Tasting Notes

Deep garnet color, nose with notes of raspberry, black pepper and undergrowth. The palate is full, complex with aromas of garrigues. Slight woody touch in the final.

Two phenomena have particularly disoriented the winegrowers of Languedoc Roussillon this year.
Autumn 2015 and winter 2016 were exceptionally dry with rainfall totals between 1st November 2015 and 1st March 2016 were around 100 mm only.  But in the same time winegrowers saw mild temperatures throughout the Languedoc.  Temperatures were 2.6˚ C higher than seasonal norms (hottest winters since 1990 in France).  Harvests have been delayed by 10 days due to the hot summer temperatures coupled with a moderate water deficit.
