Puech-Haut Reboussier

Saint-Drézéry, AOP Languedoc

The 2019 was a vintage of records with a 1st semester very humid (860mm rain) and cold.  Late June a terrible heat wave hit the Languedoc with a maximum of 46 ˚C (124˚F) registerred Friday 29th.  The still young berries suffered and 15% of the crop was burnt.  Late July, a second heat wave (41˚C, 114˚F) also happened with no damage.  The late season went very well with little rain and mild temperature. Axel Richarte put a lot of attention to the canopy management in order to protect the berries and obtain some well-balanced fruit.

Tasting Notes

Intense color, purple.  The Mediterranean nose offers aromas of red fruits, coca and ink.  The mouth assumes a mastered relief and pleasant freshness.  Tastes of plums, black fruits, licorice fondant with an acid touch that brings a power in the final.
