An exciting new release mostly from vineyards next door to ultra trendy Picpoul de Pinet, close to the Med. Using the native varieties of southern France, plus a portion from Gaillac for zippy freshness, it has creamy ripeness with lemony bite.
"Southern France is such a treasure trove of characterful native grapes – splendidly showcased here!"
Mark Hoddy Buyer for Southern France
Buyer Mark Hoddy wanted to create a fresh, characterful white that would showcase the exciting native varieties of southern France. The ones that most of us have never heard of – Loin de l’Oeil and Terret – plus better known Roussanne, Marsanne, Viognier and so on. Grapes with abundant personality. He worked with highly respected winemakers Serge Dubois and Francis Terral, using largely grapes from a vineyard close to trendy Picpoul de Pinet (the wine that’s sprung onto every wine bar and restaurant list), plus a small portion from Gaillac in the southwest. It’s a beautifully balanced white with the creamy white peach fruit you expect from Picpoul, along with the bright citrusy zip of Gaillac. A refreshing glass solo or with lighter dishes.
