90 Point red....Lancyre

Purchased in 1970 by the Durand and Valentin families, the Château was originally built in the 1500's, on the ruins of a 12th century fort. Records of winemaking date back to 1550! Lancyre is now viewed among the top estates of Pic Saint-Loup, which has justifiably garnered a reputation as the Languedoc's single best wine district.





2013 Chateau de Lancyre Coste d'Aleyrac Pic St. Loup...$19.99

I was able to taste the 2013 Pic Saint Loup la Coste d’Aleyrac multiple times, with slightly erratic results. At its best, it has beautiful black raspberry, licorice, peppery herbs and spice to go with a medium to full-bodied, elegant and seamless style on the palate. A blend of 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 10% Carignan, drink it anytime over the coming 5-7 years.
Chateau de Lancyre is a solid, consistent producer from the Pic Saint Loup region.
Rated 90/100 The Wine Advocate
