Sometimes you get a wine and the reaction is so ho-hum that you wonder where the excitement is. the more you spend the greater the disappointment can be. The Pic Saint Loup hill in the depths of the Languedoc has been acclaimed for several years now as one of the highlights of the region - but it is rare to find a wine that seems to match the excellence. This red measures up. Big time. Definitely on my shopping list for more - Pic Saint Loup individuality personified.

Red WineWine Tasting Note: Mas Thélème Exultet, 2003, Pic Saint Loup, France.
Available from PIC Wines for £12.25. [more]

The deepest and richest of blackberry-red hues and an explosive aroma - a mass of savoury, balsamic, chocolate and blackfruits. Quite delicious and I haven't even sipped it yet! The palate is wonderfully rich, full and complex - red fruits, chocolate, a savouriness that lifts the sweetness. A refined layer of tannins completes the package. Thélème’s top cuvee is a blend of Syrah and Grenache with a dash of Cinsault, aged for 18 months in French oak.
Scribblings Rating - 96/100
