REGION: Languedoc, France
VARIETIES: Picpoul 100%
VITICULTURE: Sustainable standards
INFO: Grown on high ground in vineyards that are planted on clay and limestone soils, with sustainable agricultural practices rather than chemical intervention is at the heart of everything the Vignerons de Florensac do. Day time temperatures can be harsh so a machine harvest is carried out at night to avoid any oxidation of the grapes and to keep them cool.
An eco-friendly producer, Oenologist Roques Stephane employs green techniques to control pests in the vineyard, and the Vignerons de Flornesac reduce carbon emissions by drawing energy from their vast bank of solar panels. These are used to power the refrigeration units required to keep the grapes and juice cool for maceration and fermentation. After maceration the grapes are gently pressed in a pneumatic press, and the juice fermented in stainless steel at low temperatures using cultured yeasts.
Pale yellow with green hues, this lovely and fresh Picpoul has plentiful aromas of grapefruit and citrus fruit as well as bracing citrus and stone fruit flavours.
