Château Puech-Haut – Elegant Rosés
What better subject to identify regional favorites than Languedoc wines! We recently enjoyed a lovely Languedoc wine that had an elegant glass stopper in lieu of a cork. While that unique feature captured our attention, the delightful Rosé in the bottle was “Le précieux nectar” promised by Château Puech-Haut!
With summer – at least in Florida – just around the proverbial corner, it’s time to think of light, chilled rosés. The very refined Château Puech-Haut Cuvee Prestige couldn’t make a more elegant statement for your dinner table or a special gift to friends. Their now-famous glass stopper – with a rose ‘blush’ – simply anoints the entire experience.
Château Puech-Haut is one of the prestigious types of wine producers in Languedoc referred to as récoltants – vintners who make and bottle their own wine on the premises. Most supermarkets, for example, stock négociant or co-op wines. The first buys and mixes together other people’s wines in great quantity; the latter pools grapes from all area growers to make wine. Generally, mass production yields cheaper wine without the deft personal touch of the récoltant producer.
Château Puech-Haut continues to produce excellent wines from 400+ acres of vineyards in the Languedoc countryside of southern France. The soil, climate and grape varieties of the 40- to 75-year old vines interact perfectly to yield exceptional wines.
As much as we enjoyed our introduction to their Cuvee Prestige, nothing compares with visiting a vineyard for a tasting and loading up the trunk of the car with a couple of cases of wine. We look forward to that!
