Domaine des Rocs Pic Saint-Loup Syrah & Grenache 2020
The Nose is generous and very aromatic. Garrigue scents, liquorice and black olive.
The Palate is soft and velvety wines showing a nice minerality. Discreet tannins, long and expressive mouth.
Great pairing with lamb-based meals, fried mushrooms and Tbone steak.
About the Producer:
Brigitte Jeanjean, director of Vignobles Jeanjean and 6th generation of the Jeanjean winemaking family, has always been in love with Pic St Loup, that she could see every day.
Having an estate in the appellation was so obvious for the development of the Vignobles Jeanjean, and her dream came true at the end of 2019, when Vignobles Jeanjean acquired a 13 ha vineyard near the village of Corconne. Domaine des Rocs is the French name of the Occitan Sauta Rocs, which means: the ones who jump over the rocks, a reference to the estate position, behind the Pic St Loup peak.
The estate is organically farmed, its soil is made of calcareous splits coming from the nearby Mount Coutach. Matthieu Carliez is the technical director.
Pic Saint-Loup appellation is undoubtedly the most famous one from the Languedoc region. This appellation has one of the highest rain levels of the Languedoc and its location at the foothills of the Cévennes moutain range protects it from strong winds. This is a region famous for producing elegant wines.
