Chateau La Roque Pic St. Loup Cuvée les Vieilles Vignes de Mourvèdre 2014


SKU 1416


Powerful and elegant. Explosive notes of crushed limestone and sun-kissed fruit make their presence known, yet the mouth-feel is tempered by tannins that seem to melt into the finish.

Wine AdvocatePossibly a step back from the 2013, the 2014 Pic St Loup Cuvee Vieilles Vignes Mourvedre should still be outstanding. Medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated and with terrific purity, it gives up lots of black peppery, smoked earth and crunchy black fruits on both the nose and palate. A few years of bottle age should do it well.
