Visit to Pic St. Loup with Matthew Stubbs MWBy Marisa D'Vari | June 9th, 2013 | Category: French Wine Society, Languedoc-Roussillon, News | No Comments »
Very interesting visit to Chateau de Cazeneuve, one of the top estateds in Pic St. Loup characterized by chalky limestone soils, lots of rain, and a high elevation which allows for good ripening yet high acidity. André Leenhardt, deeply restructures the estate vineyard and farm buildings in the 1990s.
Andre is a very generous man and spent a lot of time explaining the terroir and the vines. The tasting that followed reflected his disciplined approach to his wines -- 80% red and 20% white.
