• Chateau La Roque Pic Saint Loup!

    January 25th at 3pm
    The one region in the shop that I'm always trying to improve on is Languedoc-Roussillon. I only have a few wines from the region and for some reason I never seem to get tasted on wines from that region as much as I'd like so when I found out that there was a collection of wines in stock from Chateau La Roque, I jumped on the wagon. Fun fact...La Roque has been around since 1259! Since that time the estate has changed ownership several times.

    Thirty-two of the Château’s eighty hectares are consecrated to terraced vineyard land with south-southeast sun exposure, on clay and limestone soils. This is unique terroir. Garrigue, the aromatic scrub brush that dominates the landscapes of the South, asserts its presence among these vines. Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre, the noble varietals that Jack Boutin planted here years ago, make up the reds. The whites include Viognier, Rolle, Grenache Blanc, Roussane and Marsanne. In the wise words of KLWM salesperson and legend, Michael Butler, “Lay down a few cases of history.”

    Here are the wines we'll be diving into...

    2017 Chateau La Roque Coteaux du Languedoc Blanc
    2016 Chateau La Roque Pic Saint Loup Cuvee de Mourvedre
    2018 Chateau La Roque Pic Saint Loup Rose
    2017 Chateau La Roque Pic Saint Loup Rouge
    NV Chateau La Roque Vin de Pays Cuvee de Mourvedre

    I love producers that make white wines that can age!!
