Overview

Throughout the south of France, the oak tree is prized not only for its welcome shade but for the symbiotic relationship it has with the truffle. Calling on Château Puech-Haut in the winter may not seem to be the most ideal time for a visit, but sheltered from the mistral in the cozy kitchen of the Château, the smell of truffles fills the air and it feels that you’re in no better, welcoming, or suitable place in the world. If you were to journey outside to see the vineyards one would stand apart – gnarled old Grenache vines dominated by an ancient oak tree. This is the source for Quercus, the Latin for oak tree.
