Product description

The AOC Picpoul de Pinet terroir spreads around the Bassin de Thau. The roots of the vines are almost real here in the Mediterranean Sea, which you will definitely taste in the wine. Because the vineyards are close to the coast, the terroir here mainly consists of lime from the fossils of shellfish. This in combination with the exuberant sunshine gives beautiful ripe fruit with fine acids and a slightly salty taste. This wine has citrus aromas combined with floral notes in the nose. It is fresh, lively and thirst-quenching in the mouth. The Bassin Thau is a breeding ground for delicious oysters with which a good friend has been found in the Picpoul de Pinet. It will also taste great with fruits de mer or a pan of mussels. It is a real drinker that will not get bored easily!

The grapes were harvested overnight to ensure the grapes were cool when they arrived at the winery to ensure that the delicate fruit character was preserved before pressing and that the wine's aromatic style was guaranteed. The wine is fermented and stored in stainless steel against oxidation of the citrus fruit character. Cool fermentation (around 15 ° C) also helps maintain fruit purity.

However, it is at this point that the Villa des Croix differs from most Picpouls de Pinet. Most are bottled in December / January, after fermentation and settling alone. However, the Villa des Croix is ​​also aged on its lees for a minimum of 4 months to add structure, weight, body and complexity, without compromising the expected fruity and mouthwatering character of a Picpoul de Pinet.

One of the oldest Languedoc grapes, the Piquepoul has been growing near the Thau lagoon for centuries. White is the most common grape. As early as 1618, the botanist J.B. Maniol Piquepoul as one of the most famous grapes from the Languedoc in his work "Sylve plantarium". It grows in a dry climate, so the moisture at the end of the season helps fill and ripen the grapes. The grapes grow in loose bunches, are oval-shaped and come off easily. That is why in the old days, trays were often placed under the vines to catch falling grapes!

Awarded 95 points by Decanter during the panel tasting in April 2019 at the Picpoul de Pinet tasting.

Heerlijk glas met veel vulling, rijp fruit en fijne zuren. Onderscheidt zich echt van andere goede Picpouls door zijn rijke doch verfijnde smaak. Grote doordrinkbaarheid. Gedronken bij klassiek mosselpannetje!
