CHATEAU DE LANCYRE PIC SAINT LOUP COSTE DALEYRAC
The long overlooked style and quality of this increasingly fashionable appellation has been recognised with the ‘Grand Cru de Languedoc’ status. The Durand and Valentin families are now recognised as one of the leading producers in the region, producing a mouthwatering rosé and a lush, velvety rouge.
The estate’s 80 hectares are divided into three main blocks: Clapassous, located around the Romanesque chapel of Aleyrac, Les Couronnes, the estate’s coolest site on hard limestone soils, and Valflaunès on red soils and limestone scree. The vines here average 25 years old and are planted to a density of 5500 vines per hectare on average. The soil is predominantly clay and limestone. The yield is around 50 hl per ha The harvest is a combination of a specially adapted machine and hand picking.
Limpid, brilliant garnet -red. A mix of intense aromas of black cherry, red berry fruits and cinnamon notes on the nose. Fresh and thirst quenching at point on entry with red fruits marrying liquorice sweets and chocolate. Silky, full, lush and suave palate showing great finesse.
