Between the Cevennes and Mont Ventoux, located just to the north of Montpellier, Pic Saint-Loup is one of the most famous and scenic of all of the Languedoc enclaves. The dramatic limestone escarpments, including the eponymous ‘peak’, provide a memorable back-drop to a number of excellent wine properties, of which Château de Lancyre is one of the very best. The only mystery remaining, grosso modo, is why Pic Saint-Loup has not yet been granted an independent Appellation Contrôlée status…The answer, it seems, lies in bureaucracy more rather than intrinsic wine quality ...indeed the enclave has no shortage of quality and it wines all have impressive individuality allied to great aromatic persistence and structural power. Regis Valentin and Bernard Durand have done great things at Château Lancyre to prove this very point.
