Wine AdvocateFrom a massal selection that's planted to 10,000 vines per hectare, the 2014 Pic St Loup is a ripe, supple, medium-bodied effort that offers tons of charm and character for not much money. Plums, licorice, wild herbs/garrigue and violets all emerge from this well-made Pic St Loup, and while I don't think it will make old bones, it should keep nicely for 4-5 years. Drink Date: 2016-2021.
