Visit to Pic St. Loup with Matthew Stubbs MW

pic

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.
