Ermitage Du Pic St. Loup

Pic Saint Loup is an appellation named for the mountain 20 kilometers north of Montpellier. A huge landmark, it rises from the scrub and vine-covered plain like a colossal amphitheater, creating a unique microclimate which provides cooler temperatures and slightly greater rainfall. Such conditions are rare this far south, and are ideal for varieties like Syrah and Mourvedre, which gain complexity with a longer cooler growing season. The viticultural area of Pic Saint Loup is one of the cru of the Coteaux du Languedoc, along with other greater appellations along the Herault River Valley: Montpeyroux, Faugeres, and Saint-Chinian.

The vineyards are located in the foothills of the Pic Saint Loup Mountain, benfitting from a south-southwest exposure at altitudes of 100-300 meters. The soil vary, but include sand, schist, clay, and pebbles.

Several different wines are produced by the family, and all are vinified in the tradition of the Languedoc. Varietals are vinified separately, and later blended depending upon the cuvee. During vinification the must benefits from long maceration in order to obtain deeply colored and concentrated wines.

The domaine is owned by the Ravaille family, residents of the area for at least a thousand years.
