A Penchant For Sipping Pleasure

Tastes like: Peach. Pear. Exotic Spice, Sweet Almond. White Flowers. Minerality. 

Harking from Calmel and Joseph’s own domaine near to the magical Medieval walled city of Carcassonne, this is a spellbinding,certified organically farmed wine. 

We’re happy to admit we have a penchant for Roussanne; it’s often used as a blending grape so when we tasted this single varietal expression we just had to have it!

The rather continental climate of the vineyard plus careful pruning of the vines means that the grapes are fully matured, giving the wine complexity and ripe and exotic fruit flavours. Some time on lees adds extra depth too.

Absolutely delicious now, this wine will continue to evolve in the bottle if you lay it down (if you can resist!)

Perfect refreshing wine

I love Picpoul de Pinet wines for their combination of simplicity and Mediterranean character. This is a wine which shows defined purity of fruit, high acidity and the slight saltiness notes that you get from the appellation. A great example of the French quality answer to Italian Pinot Grigio at a great value for money.
