Bergerie de l'Hortus Classique Pic St Loup France 2012
The 2012’s blend demonstrates once more the affinity of Syrah and this famous eponymous limestone escarpment. 60% Syrah is blended, after elevage, with equal measures of Mourvèdre and Grenache. The wine has captured the equilibrium and real sense of place for which 2012 is quickly gaining recognition; myrtle, sousbois and forest –floor aromas are matched on the palate by a weight of black fruit which is poised and gently peppery. Southern Syrah is here captured in one of its more elegant manifestations.
