Producer Profile; Situated halfway between the Mediterranean Sea and the Massif Central foothills, 4kms away from the historical city of Pézenas, the Estate vineyard extends over plains and garrigues. While the fine sand, or clay, or silt carried by the nearby running Hérault waters give fresh and fruity White and Rosé wines. The Etang de Thau, not far away, bathes its influence on the Picpoul de Pinet plots. There are 50 hectares in total and most of the production is now of varietal wines sold as pays' d'Oc. The vineyard has a system of night mechanical harvesting to protect the grapes potential. Soft pressings with juice selection and limited sulphites addition.
