Les Nobles Pierres 2013 Pic Saint Loup - Château de Lascaux


"Like all of Cavalier's wines, the purity of fruit here, as well as the texture, is outstanding. Drink this beauty over the coming 7-8 years.” - Robert Parker. This upmarket cuvée is indeed a beautiful, big red wine showing powerful aromas of black fruit, spices and wood. Not for the faint hearted, this is a hell of a Pic Saint Loup for true Languedoc amateurs. As it is just entering its drinking window now, do not be afraid to keep a few bottles for a few years, it will develop really well.

Expert.pngWhat experts say  

90-92/100 "Made from Syrah and Grenache, the 2013 Pic St Loup Les Nobles Pierres exhibits lots of fresh plum, blackberry, pepper and hints of meatiness to go with medium to full-bodied richness and depth on the palate. Fresh, focused and with lively acidity, it will drink nicely on release and evolve gracefully”

  

88/100 "Black cherry and plum fruit enriched by notes of dark chocolate and dense tannins."

Platinum Medal at Decanter Asia Wine Awards 2017 - 95/100 "Dense black fruit aromas, lifted by lovely floral hints with leathery complexity, the palate is dark, full bodied and meaty, with great structure of fleshy tannin and fresh acidity through the long finish."
