TASTING NOTE

This irresistible Picpoul is aged on fine lees with regular stirring of the lees in order to bring richness and roundness. An absolute charmer with heady aromas of white flowers and acacia preceding a palate that's fuller than many Picpoul, but still very fresh, with soft tones of citrus and exotic fruits and an elegant minerality.

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

Located over the Bassin of Thau and all along the Via Domitia, the Vineyard was created in 1330. It was the property of a religious order: the Holy-Spirit order. In 1966, the Morin family (winegrowers from father to son since 1830) became the vineyard's owner under Albert Morin's authority.

Nowadays, the vineyard stretches over 58 hectares, 36 devoted to white grapes and 22 to red grapes, and it is totally under the AOP Picpoul de Pinet. The estate is located on a calcareous plateau covered with very small stones and fine sand. Near the Bassin de Thau, the vines face the morning sun. The Tramontane, dominant, dry and cold wind blows the clouds and dries out the soils. This lack of water is partially balanced by the sea sprays coming from the Bassin de Thau.
