2023 Picpoul de Pinet, Domaine La Croix Gratiot, Coteaux du Languedoc

£15.75 inc. VAT

The proximity to the sea means cool maritime breezes moderate the climate, making it ideal for growing this white grape variety. Producing wines with vibrant citrus, pear and spice on the nose.

The Picpoul grapes grow close to the commune of Mèze on a chalky plateau. The proximity of the zone to the sea means cool maritime breezes moderate the climate, making it ideal for growing this white grape variety. Its naturally high acidity is retained to give a wine of real interest and liveliness.

The grapes were harvested at night to ensure they were cool when they arrived at the winery. This meant that the delicate fruit character was kept fresh before pressing, and the aromatic style of the wine was guaranteed. The wine was fermented and stored in stainless steel tanks which ensured no oxidation of the precious stone fruit character. A cool fermentation (around 15°C) also helped preserve the fruit purity. The wine rested on fine lees for three months prior to bottling.

This wine is bright yellow in colour with youthful highlights. Vibrant citrus aromas of lime and grapefruit are on the nose. The palate is full but extremely well balanced, with fresh Picpoul acidity and pure fruit flavours. The finish is long and mouthwatering, with complexity of stone fruit, spice and minerality.
