Vignerons de Florensac, Pique & Mixe Piquepoul - Terret
The Florensac terroir is one of the oldest planted vineyards near the Mediterranean coast and unusually for the South of France, this is a specialist white wine producer benefiting from the cooling breezes that moderate the heat. Grown on high ground in vineyards that are planted on clay and limestone soils. The vines are harvested at night to preserve aromas and freshness. Once fermented the wine is aged on fine lees with regular stirring of the lees in order to bring out roundness & richness in texture to compliment the acidity.
With its pale yellow colour with brilliant green reflections, a fresh and fruity nose marked by notes of lemon and grapefruit; exotic, lively and fresh in the mouth, revealing a beautiful richness supported by citrus flavours and beautiful length.
This wine matches beautifully with all sea foods including oysters at any time of the day.
