Wine:The 2006 red Coteaux du Languedoc Clos des Cistes is a deep wine with smoky, spicy, and undergrowth notes. It comes from the highest part of the estate, on very hard stony soils. It is a monumental and iconic style, very complex, driven by formidable energy and great tension. The palate begins to settle with its usual bounce and reserve, patinated tannins, and unique spicy notes. Velvety but still powerful on the finish. The wine will be released from the estate's cellars in the spring of 2023. Rated 93/100 RVF and 97/100 Bettane+Desseauve.
Cellar aging:From now on and more for enthusiasts
An icon of the Languedoc region, Peyre Rose is, first and foremost, the non-conformist work of Marlene Soria. Created at the beginning of the 90s with modest ambitions, the estate quickly became an icon, the reference of a still nascent Languedoc vineyard eager to bring its great wines to the international scene.
Adulated by Robert Parker, Peyre Rose swiftly caught the attention of critics and wine lovers alike. Forever in demand, his wines are an inspiration, models of temperance and expectation, bearing the stigma of time, revealed by measured and patient maturation and exemplary organic farming.
The three reds (Belle Léone, formerly Syrah Léone, Les Cistes, formerly Clos des Cistes and Marlène n°3), which are predominantly Syrah, full-bodied and energetic at birth, thus take on the patina of time with unparalleled grace, brilliantly transcending the paradox between a delicate, perfumed aroma and the sublime concentration of their origin. Endowed with captivating finales, they are great wines for aging, marketed by the estate after long years of evolution in the cellar.
