Chateau Puech Haut is directed by Gerard Bru. In 30 years, the estate has become unavoidable in the Languedoc. The red wines are the identity of the castle, their symbol is the ram and their accessibility taste since their youth has made a huge commercial success around the world. After experiencing success in the industry, Gerard Bru decides to return to the land. He bought a property in the 90s, in Saint Drezery (near Montpellier). At first there was only scrubland and olive trees. Today, there are 165 hectares of vineyards! Thanks to this area, the estate offers a variety of very good wines, but it can also afford to make a drastic selection of its best grapes to vinify a wine of excellence, which finds its place in our catalog:
Chateau Puech Haut "Tete de Belier".
The vineyard benefits from an excellent terroir: a clay-limestone soil covered with rolled pebbles (as in Chateauneuf du Pape). In Provencal, "Puech" means "hill", Puech Haut means a hill in height, a major asset in these latitudes (thanks to the famous temperature differences between day and night).
The red wines are mostly based on Syrah because the owner of the place is a big admirer of Cote Rotie. They are mostly in Languedoc Saint Drezery appellation. Michel Rolland, counselor from 1996 to 2006 has largely collaborated to the success of Puech Haut. Since 2008 it is Philippe Cambie, renowned advisor for his work in the southern Rhône, especially in Chateauneuf, and Mathieu Ciampi, oenologist, who took over.
Man of art and taste, Gerard Bru asked his painter friends what they could achieve on a barrel. From there were born Bib'art (perhaps inspired by life-size resin cows decorated by the artists of the Cowparade?). On site, we can discover more than 100 barrels decorated by artists. And especially, the giant barrel, 12 meters long and 6 meters high, which welcomes groups visiting the area that follows the trend "wine tourism"!
