Heritage “An 1189” refers directly to the medieval legend behind the name Pic Saint-Loup.
The AOC Pic Saint-Loup appellation is one of the benchmarks for wines from the south of France.
Located north of Montpellier, in the foothills of the Cévennes, the Pic Saint Loup AOC (Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée) vineyard is one of the most prestigious in Languedoc-Roussillon.
Located on limestone geology and covered by Mediterranean vegetation of scrubland, the vines here offer fine and elegant wines.
The character of the red wines of Pic Saint Loup is an ideal marriage between the power of Languedoc wines and the roundness of wines from the Rhône Valley.
This deep red wine is made from three grape varieties emblematic of the Occitanie region, namely Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache.
Its traditional vinification (destemming, maceration, pressing and malolactic fermentation) allows an authentic transmission of the flavors of this iconic wine.
Part of this Pic Saint Loup wine (about a third) is aged in barrels for 9 months, bringing a complex aromatic palette and more roundness. This careful design allows the An 1189 Pic Saint Loup collection to offer a rich and unctuous taste.
On the nose, this red wine from the south of France reveals an intense and deep bouquet. The mouth, meanwhile, is a reflection of its terroir, complex and generous, evoking the Mediterranean scrubland from which its vineyard originates.
For an ideal food and wine pairing, enjoy this Pic Saint-Loup Héritage An 1189 at a temperature of 18°C, with characterful red meat or game, grilled or roasted vegetables, and mature cheeses.
