"The Clos Marie 2009 Coteaux du Languedoc Pic Saint-Loup Simon - tasted assembled in tank for June bottling - delivers a sweet melange of lightly-cooked red and black raspberries that draws saliva and derives invigoration from strong salinity and a crunch of berry seeds. Violet, iris, and arbor vitae waft from the glass and across the richly-fruited palate, while iron-rich, complexly bitter notes of chard, rosemary, and fruit pit add to a sense of dark depth and invigoration to a long, vibrant finish. This unusually energetic 2009 ought to be worth following for at least half a dozen years. There can't often have been a more impressive Simon cuvee than this, I'm thinking...even with the potential of 2010 fresh in my mind. (The individual lots of 2010, tasted at the same time - mid April - were predictably expressive and fine.)" (08/11)
"Christophe Peyrus took over his familyâs vineyards in 1991. Prior to this, his father had sold the grapes to a local cooperative. From that point on, he sought council with some of the greatest winemakers in France (Didier Dagueneau, Clos Rougeard, Grange des Peres, etc) and now the French wine press considers his winery to be at the top of the appellation. The twenty hectare (50 acres) property is situated in and around the village of Lauret, north of Montpellier and the vineyards are scattered around the terraces that rise from the village up to the sharp cliffs that form part of the plateau of the Hortus mountain. The soils are clay and chalky limestone, and all of the vineyards are continuously plowed to force the vines' roots to seek nourishment deep down in the limestone bedrock. The domaine has been farmed using biodynamic principles since 2000, and no pesticides or herbicides have ever been used. The harvest is done manually. Yields for the various cuvees vary between 15-35hl per hectare." -Importer
