The Clos Marie 2010 Coteaux du Languedoc Pic Saint-Loup Metairies du Clos Vieilles Vignes represents a co-fermentation of Carignan with Syrah and Grenache, which Peyrus and Julien’s consider the ideal process for this cuvee. A wealth of spice and floral perfume (the latter no doubt accentuated by vendange entier) seduces the nose; then adds to a lush yet bright profusion of dark berries shadowed by hints of game and a savory undertone of meaty pan scrapings. This finely-textured wine finishes with smoky, spicy pungency; mouthwatering salinity; cut; and exhilarating, refreshing persistence. It should be exciting to follow for at least a decade.
Christophe Peyrus took over his family’s vineyards in 1991. Prior to this, his father had sold the grapes to a local cooperative. From that point on, he sought council with some of the greatest winemakers in France (Didier Dagueneau, Clos Rougeard).
"Clos Marie, unquestionably is one of Pic-St-Loup's up and coming estate. " Robert Parker
