Puech-Haut Tête de Belier Rosé

Saint-Drézéry, AOP Languedoc

The 2019 was a vintage of records with a 1st semester very humid (850mm rain) and cold.  Late June a terrible heat wave hit the Languedoc with a maximum of 46˚ C (124˚ F) registered 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 fruits.

Tasting Notes

The rose petal-colored dress opens on a nose of a beautiful intensity with notes of citrus and small acidulous fruits.  The mouth is creamy and without heaviness.  A beautiful aromatic complexity with notes of white cherries, jasmine, star anise.  Nice length and finish on white pepper.
