Overview

A short distance away from Saint-Drézéry is the famed Pic Saint Loup, 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.
