Vignerons de Florensac Ornezon, Picpoul de Pinet, Languedoc Roussillon, France 2021

Regular price £11.74

Classic Picpoul, full of citrus and stone fruit flavours

The Florensac terroir is one of the oldest planted vineyards near the French Mediterranean coast and unusually for the South of France, this is a specialist white wine producer, situated just 10km inland from the Eastern shores of the Bassin de Thau. Grown on high ground in vineyards that are planted on clay and limestone soils, with sustainable agricultural practices rather than chemical intervention is at the heart of everything the Vignerons de Florensac do. Day time temperatures can be harsh so a machine harvest is carried out at night to avoid any oxidation of the grapes and to keep them cool.

Tasting Note: Pale yellow with green hues, this lovely and fresh Picpoul has plentiful aromas of grapefruit and citrus fruit as well as bracing citrus and stone fruit flavours.
