Description

Rouquet's Merlot

In the high garrigue, twenty kilometres north of Montpellier, a very characteristic silhouette stands out. The bold profile of the Pic Saint-Loup exudes an almost mystical atmosphere. From its height, it overlooks the plains and the slopes, at the foot, where the traditional villages lie, between pine forests and garrigue grassland.

This delicious wine is made from 100% grape juice. With its brilliant colour and golden tones, fine nose of fruit; pear, peach and bergamot. Supple and fruity with a good balance. Buttery and an excellent mineral finish. The alcohol content of this wine is 13,5%.

This wine is perfect to combine with fish and meat dishes, such as:

  • fried oysters
  • fried skate wing
  • grilled sole
  • guinea fowl
  • veal roll 

The Pic Saint-Loup terroir is the most northerly of the Languedoc terroirs. The combination of a Mediterranean and a continental climate gives it its original character. The differences in daytime and night-time temperatures in late summer enhance the finesse and character of this wine. This diversity gives rise to an exceptional terroir for wines with a strong personality.
