    Winemaker's Notes:

    65% Syrah, 35% Grenache.
    Lancyre's flagship bottling, produced from some of the oldest Syrah vines in the Languedoc! Cassis, plums, spearmint and licorice on the nose. Deep and dense on the palate, with an underlying minerality and a long finish.
    Excellent with filet of beef, grilled tuna steak, or gamebirds.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Domaine Lanceyre's 2007 Coteaux du Languedoc Pic Saint-Loup Vieilles Vignes – from Syrah with 35% Grenache, tasted assembled from tank – offers a marrow-like sweet, meaty savor as well as stone and graphite minerality to complement its abundance of rich, fresh black raspberry, plum, and cherry. This superb value offers abundant herbal inner-mouth aromatics as well, and clings with invigorating vivacity and intriguing complexity. I would feel comfortable holding it for 4-6 years. For a note on the impressive 2006 Vieilles Vignes bottling, consult issue 178. I cannot pretend that my palate agrees with those of Durand and Valentin as to the virtues of the barrel regimen employed for the estate's ostensibly top, Syrah-dominated – "Grande" – cuvee ,which includes a bit of Mourvedre as well as Grenache.
    91-92 points.

    Not sure what RP was drinking/rating when decided to try this wine. Too light in body, and collectively the dinner party compared this to cough syrup. Sorry-- not often do I get this critical of a wine, but this one does not really have anything I could even think about recommending.
