Chateau Puech-Haut 2010 Saint -Drezery
This wine has been much talked about in the press as one of the best value reds of the year. It hails from Languedoc in South of France and the famous Southern Rhone consultant Philippe Cambie acts as consultant to Puech-Haut.
It has been rated 94 by Robert Parker's Wine Advocate's new recruit, the Rhone expert Jeb Dunnock in his Rhone Report and this is what he says about the wine:
"Even better than the brilliant 09, with more elegance and freshness, the 2010 Chateau Puech-Haut Coteaux du Languedoc Saint-Drezery Cuvee Prestige is a custom cuvee made by Philippe Cambie and Eric Solomon. An absurd value and a blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre, and 5% Carignan that's aged half in concrete and half in neutral barrel, it possesses a vivid, semi-opaque purple color to go with captivating aromas of raspberry liqueur, cassis, fresh flowers, sappy underbrush, and licorice-like qualities that simply soar from the glass. On the palate, this impeccably put together Languedoc has a pure, polished profile, with a sappy, resinous tactile sensation in its full-bodied texture, perfect balance, and a long, seamless finish. While no lightweight, it is in no way over the top and has real poise and elegance that is married to plenty of power and depth. While it has the balance and tannin structure to evolve gracefully for upwards of a decade, I see no reason to hold off. Score: 94 Jeb Dunnuck, Rhone Report, March 2012
The Wine Deal, curious about the positive reviews on this wine, decided to try for ourselves and what we found was a well structured high quality wine with a dark purple colour, nose of blackcurrant and oak that is followed by a smooth black fruit filled smooth finish with mild acidity. This is a light, elegant and quality wine and is certainly a wine that punches above its weight and can be drunk now. At this price range is highly recommended.
For those interested in ratings, Jancis Robinson has also given this a 16.5.
