AOP Languedoc Pic-saint-loup

Château de Lascaux 2016

€660 Flacon de 10cl

Situated in a sheltered zone between the Mediterranean and the Cévennes at 150 meters altitude, the Pic Saint-Loup winegrowing area covers nearly 1,000 hectares. This wine has a deliciously enticing nose displaying the typical violet aromas of the Syrah grape. Its rich toffee and raspberry notes lead into more earthy notes of fern. On the palate, this is a supple red revealing very nice fullness and body. The tannins are well integrated with its fruitiness and it has an extremely elegant floral finish. It is a wine which has great appeal and which is a real pleasure to taste.

Winemaker

Jean-Benoit Cavalier

Château de Lascaux is a family-run wine estate that has belonged to the Cavalier family for 14 generations. After completing engineering studies in agronomy, Jean-Benoît took the estate’s destiny in his hands. From the 20 or so hectares of vines when he took over in 1984, the vineyard has grown to its present size of almost 85 hectares, surrounded by 300 hectares of garrigue scrub. Isabelle and Jean-Benoît have achieved organic certification for their entire vineyard, however their practices and aspirations run much deeper than a simple label. Their humility towards nature, fascination and excitement for the coming vintages are transmitted by Jean-Benoît every day to his team.
