Domaine des Lauriers Picpoul de Pinet
Zestiness and only moderate alcohol to balance the orchard fruit character and creamy finish.
- Languedoc-Roussillon, France
"This wine from up in the back hills of the appellation is pithy and yeasty-fresh, with a spicy lemon-orange note which almost reminds me of wheat beer. There’s dancing acidity and a pungent finish." 89 points - Andrew Jefford, Decanter
The 30-hectare vineyard spreads through the Mediterranean garrigue and is in part situated on slopes of red earth covered with pebbles and gravel. These release the sun's heat to aid the ripening of the grapes. The association of garrigue, pine plantation soil types and the moisture-laden ocean breezes form a special microclimate, bringing cooler air from September to October, which is perfect for ripening late white varietals such as Picpoul.
The Domaine practices very conscientious viticulture and is a member of Terravitis, a collection of winemaking estates that adhere to responsible, environmentally friendly practices and promote a holistic and integrated approach to bio-diversity within their estates. This serves as an alternative to the organic certification.
