Wine of the Week
Puech Haut Pic Saint Loup ’16
“The 2016 Pic Saint Loup La Closerie du Pic, a blend of Syrah and Grenache, features striking aromas of crushed stone to go along with the familiar cola and plum notes so typical of this estate’s style. It’s full-bodied and softly tannic but concentrated, with more freshness, energy and length than the entry-level wines. It should drink well for up to a decade.”
