Aoc Coteaux du Languedoc Picpoul de Pinet 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: Brilliant, pale yellow tint with green hues Very fresh nose, delicate and floral, hawthorn, white flowers Lively and fresh attack with lemon touch Served by 10°C, this lively and fresh wine will perfectly accompany grilled fish and sea-fruit but also traditional sea-cooking. You can of course have the Picpoul de Pinet as an aperitif! Soil: The parcel is located on the municipality of Mèze, near to the pond of Thau. Vines are planted on a sandy-silty soil spangled with chalk stones. The Mediterranean climate is warmed by the see breezes and favours the maturation of the grapes. It preserves together the natural acidity and the fruity of the Piquepoul varietal. 4 of the 5 hectares of Piquepoul are trained with the Guyot pruning, the rest of the Piquepoul is trained in single Guyot pruning. The 5 hectares of vines are regularly and deeply ploughed and trellised. We adopted a non-systematic farming with a yield of 50 hectolitres per hectares. Vinification Method: Night harvesting. Total destalking. Immediate pressing (pneumatic)Must protection through carbon dioxide. Cold settling (6°C). Low temperate fermentation (13-15°C) On the lees tanks maturation during 3 months
