Roc des Mates 2010 - Pic Saint-Loup

The opinion of the sommelier

“Roc des Mates is strong, tannic and velvety at the same time. The taste is pleasant and silky. It has a long keeping potential thanks to his 18 ageing in barrels. Here you have a fine wine, very representative of the Pic Saint-Loup denomination. This very tannic wine will seduce those who love masculine wines. Open two hours before serving to round tannins”.


Clayey soil, vegetation and Mediterranean climate are the stronger assets of terroir Pic Saint-Loup. Vineyards of this cuvee are situated on a mountain chain at 150 metres above sea level. In particular vines grow on calcareous-clay slopes that are skeletal thin and pebbly soils. 25-years old vineyards give good quality grapes since the age is in inverse proportion to quantity. Indeed smaller quantity allows grapes to grow better.

lecepage Grape variety

This wine is a syrah-based blend. The result is a tannic and intense wine. Grenache varietal gives body (alcohol) to wine, whereas mourvèdre increases the keeping potential.

lemillesime Vintage

2006 was an exceptional year for structured and long-keeping wines of Provence. Indeed, climate conditions were ideal: there was a perfect balance between warm sun and rain showers. This allowed grapes to reach a good maturation.

lerecoltant Winemaker

MAndré Leenhardt, Dedé for his friends, was mayor of his village and president of the syndicate of Pic Saint-Loup wines. He purchased this winery in 1988. Wines from south of France are known for their character and wild aspect; however Dedé has successfully given roundness, fineness and smoothness to this strong wine.
