Soil : Located 20 km north of Montpellier, the Pic Saint Loup AOC is the most northern of the Languedoc appellations. Its 900 hectares of vineyards are planted on limestone-clay and limestone-marl soil. Principal varieties are Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Carignan and Cinsault. In summer, while the grapes are ripening, the temperature in this area varies greatly from day to night, which favours the development of fine, concentrated wines. Pic Saint Loup is known for its unique climate, which persists, regardless of the year.
Style : Marks of red and black fruits as well as violet. In mouth the wine is rich, fresh and mineral.
