Domaine Piétri Géraud Blanc L’Écume 2021

Collioure AOP

A fine, crisp white from a 5th-generation Roussillon estate. Bare soils, vertical vineyards close to the Med, these extreme conditions make for a sensational white. Grenache Blanc, Gris and Vermentino, fermented in new oak in Laetitia's tiny cellar.

If you’ve watched Rick Stein’s series Hidden France, you’ve met Laetitia; she took him into her Collioure cellar perched amid her virtually vertical, terraced vineyards, overlooking the blue Med. It’s her oak-fermented dry white that is so extraordinary. And she is even more so. An artist, with a motor that never stops. Her terraced vineyards are the steepest in France. The soil is rock, the climate arid and the yield per hectare a fraction that of vineyards on the flat land nearby. She’s the only winemaker to have a winery in the narrow streets of Collioure. How does she get her grapes through those tourist-jammed passages in August? She is an unstoppable wine force! Handpicked grapes, fermented in barrel, the wine is crisp and complex.

"Laetitia has the most beautiful vineyards and produces this extraordinary crisp, oaked white" Tony Laithwaite
