Technical Info

Region: Languedoc

Appellation: Picpoul de Pinet

Vintage: 2015

Variety: 100% Picpoul 

Estate: This has been an established estate since the 16th century.  In 1980 the Benau family purchased the property.  They would harvest the fruit and sell it to the local co-op.  In 1999, Juliette decided to take the fruit from the best plots and bottle it for the first time.  Only the highest quality wines are put into the bottle on the insistence of Juliette. 

The grapes are hand harvested, and hand sorted two times, once in the vineyard and again on the sorting table.  Vinification is for 7 months sur lie with indigenous yeast.  

 

Tasting Notes: This wine is light, bright, acidic, and zesty.  It is perfect as an aperitif and is a wonderful accompaniment with oysters.
