2016 Chateau Puech-Haut "Prestige" Coteaux du Languedoc Saint-Drezery Rosé

SKU #1305300 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Beautiful as always, the 2016 Saint Drezery Prestige Rose offers clean, crisp notes of white peach, strawberries and hints of flowers. It’s a terrific, medium-bodied, elegant beauty to buy by the case. (JD)  (4/2017)

Vinous

 Bright pink. Incisive, mineral-tinged strawberry and tangerine scents, along with hints of dried lavender and fennel. Dry and nervy on the palate, offering bitter citrus pith and red berry flavors that unfurl slowly on the back half. Shows a touch of warmth on the clinging finish, which echoes the floral and citrus fruit notes. Drink 2017-2019. (JR)  (6/2017)

Summer is almost here and people want to drink pink. With such a vast inventory of rosé currently available, how do you decide which to enjoy? Each has a unique personality of its own and it may take some time to find the one best suited to your palate. Or perhaps you like all of them. I certainly have my favorites and this happens to be one of them. I enjoy everything about this rosé, right down to the frosted bottle it’s held in. There’s wild strawberries with a faint hint of orange blossom on the nose, and some bright citrus on the palate. This has texture, flavor, the acidity is alive and the finish long and lasting. Prestige indeed.

The Puech-Haut estate lies in the hills just outside the city of Montpellier in the region of Languedoc. This higher elevation is a huge contributing factor to the quality and intensity of Puech-Haut's red wines. No surprise, they also excel at rose production. Making light colored rose in this region is no easy feat, but Puech-Haut succeeds in making a beautifully pure selection that is not shy on flavor or richness. Almost Bandol-like in its structure, the Puech-Haut Rose has light notes of strawberry, a whisper of seabreeze, brined apples and a touch of bay leaf. The finish is long and mineral driven with its beguiling intensity.

Just an awesome example of Provence-style rose from another appellation. It is delicate and smells like a big bouquet of fresh flowers. A bit sharper on the palate, this rose is great on its own or with cheese. Could even stand up to something like lobster dipped in butter.

It is my favorite time of the year!! Rose Season!! The "Prestige" looks to be a winner out of the gate with a dynamic blend of Grenache and Cinsault. This is the perfect wine to beat the summer heat. The nose opens to floral, citrus and red berry notes. Clean, crisp and elegant for this medium-body beauty. This delectable dry wine pairs with just about anything. For all you Provence rose wine drinkers, take note. Don't pass this one by.
