The Oddbins Take

With our rudimentary French we can only assume the Languedoc region of Pic St Loup is named for the wolf saints that must have once ruled this hillock. We imagine like the Starks of Winterfell, thanks to their pack of dire wolves and overuse of the sentiment 'winter is coming' they ruled the surrounding area with great aplomb. It couldn't last though, canine hegemony was undoubtedly destabilised by that git Ramsey Snow, it's fine he got his comeuppance.


Although, we're sad about the passing of the age of the wolf saints, without the continued threat of snow zombies and blue dragons the people of Pic St Loup managed to do a great deal more with the land that they inhabited. They quickly discovered it was rather excellent for vine growing. Gerard Bertrand is now one of the lords of the Pic St Loup wine growing community, bottling astoundingly nuanced wines from Rhone varietals. This wine exhibits intense floral aromas of thyme and red fruit in the nose, nuanced with delicate hints of liquorice, black olive tapenade and cherry brandy. Wonderful freshness on the palate, full bodied with subtle, elegant tannins.
