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.
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.
The Syrah from the Languedoc wine region reveals itself in the glass in bright purple. This French single-varietal wine has wonderfully expressive notes of blueberries, blackcurrants, mulberries and plums in the glass. These are accompanied by notes of lovage, cocoa beans and chocolate with whole nuts.
This dry red wine from Rouquet's is just right for people who like dry wine. On the tongue, this balanced red wine has an incredibly fleshy and silky texture. In the aftertaste, this preservative red wine from the Languedoc region finally charms with a nice length. There are also hints of mulberry and plum.
This French wine is best drunk at a temperature of 15 - 18°C. It is perfect as a side dish to vegetable couscous with beef meatballs, boiled fillet of veal with beans and tomatoes or osso buco.
