THE NO-BRAINER RHONE BLENDS OF PIC SAINT LOUP
The new (as of 2016) AOC Pic Saint Loup has to be the most exciting new cru in Southern France. Named for the mountain peak towering above the upper Languedoc, the dry winds and sloped sunny vineyards give the AOC a climate not unlike Cote-Rotie. It's fitting then, that the appellation requires at least 50% Syrah in their blends, lending them a brooding meatiness often lacking in more basic GSMs.

Emritage du Pic Saint Loup is the region's most classic expression. Their introductory cuvee, 'Tour du Pierres,' features 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache, and 10% Mourvedre grown on a mix of well drained clay and limestone. The wine shows a shocking amount of berry fruit and herbal character for its price point. Think rubbed sage and chopped rosemary over ripe blackberries and cranberry coulis. Biodynamic farming and one year in old foudre add a subtle degree of smoke and barnyard. It's well made natural wine with the complexity of the top Rhone crus at $21 a bottle. Simply a no brainer.
