Cru Pic Saint Loup 'Carra'

Cru Pic Saint Loup 'Carra'

Languedoc-Roussillon, France
Château de Lascaux - 2014
Product Code: EFB75
Grape: Grenache, Syrah / Shiraz
Size: 75cl
Alcohol: 14%
From an isolated area, surrounded by forest garrigue, close to both sea and mountains. 'Lascoux' comes from the name of the limestone specific to this vineyard's site. The 60% Syrah and 40% Grenache ripen slowly here, helped by the microclimate and there's notes of thyme, rosemary and mint amongst the earthy, berried fruit on offer. Excellent quality wine with pure expression, that is starting to drink very well.

Chateau de Lascaux

A wonderful estate situated in a wild and immense garrigue forest, in Languedoc between Montpellier and Nimes, in the foothills of the Cévennes. It's here that Jean-Benoit Cavalier (a 14th generation winemaker!) took over the family estate in 1984, expanded and improved it. Being a keen environmentalist, the switch to organic and biodynamic farming practices was a natural step in 2006. As a keen promoter of biodiversity, the local goat and cattle herds are allowed to graze the vineyards! The wines are wonderfully expressive and elegant.
