About Château Puech-Haut
Coming up the long lane, bordered by olive trees, with vineyards on each side, it is difficult to imagine how this place was about 15 years ago. Today, Château Puech-Haut is one of the most beautiful estates in the Languedoc and the wines amongst the finest in the region.
The story of Château Puech-Haut is interesting, as is that of Gérard BRU, the owner. An ex-industrialist who, starting from nothing, created a business of 500 employees and a personal fortune.
About Languedoc & Pic Saint Loup
A short distance away from Saint-Drézéry is the famed Pic Saint Loup. Notably a region named for the jagged, limestone mountain at its center. Here elevation and poor limestone soils combine to make wines of incredible freshness and balance despite their southerly latitude. Gerard Bru has taken note of this terroir, one that very close to his home base in Saint-Drézèry yet at the same time quite apart. Together with Philippe Cambie and Eric Solomon he has crafted a wine, Closerie du Pic, that captures the unique qualities of this region by blending Grenache, aged in tank, with Syrah aged in new and second-fill French oak barrels.
