Winemaker's Notes

Delicate, ruby-red hue. Small red fruit, blackcurrant, cherries on the nose with slightly peppery notes. Fruity, crunchy first layer gives way to hints of roast coffee.

Syrah (50%) Grenache (40%) Carignan (10%)

Critical Acclaim

"A cuvee of Syrah and Grenache with a bit of Carignan first essayed in 2000, the Lanceyre 2007 Coteaux du Languedoc Pic Saint-Loup La Coste d'Aleyrac – due to have been bottled in February – is full of ripe black fruits to be sure, but offers more herbal, carnal, and mineral dimensions than the corresponding 2006. An impression of saline, marjoram-laced beef bouillon with cherry and purple plum extend to a long, satisfyingly juicy, clear, faintly and stimulatingly bitter finish. Look for this exceptional value to offer pleasure for another 3-4 years. Range: 90-91 "
