Jean-Baptiste de Clock runs this superb 5 hectare property right in the heart of Picpoul de Pinet country, 38km south west of Montpellier, very close to the town of Mèze and right by the coast. The grapes are picked manually at night when it is much cooler, destemmed and fermented at a low temperature for 20 days. The wine is then kept in stainless steel tanks and bottled in the Spring after the harvest.

Pplenty of opulent pineapple and lush ripe white peaches, leading to a palate of more tropical fruit laced with that pleasant salinity and backbone that characterises a good Picpoul, leaving a lingering sensation of ripe fruit and kitchen herbs. Far from the thin acidic bar quaffers that pollute the name of this southern French appellation, this is gorgeous with fish salads and cheeses.

Due to high demand we've temporarily increased our standard delivery fee to £12.50 for orders under £75 - orders over £75 still come with free delivery!

We are also no longer able to guarantee “Express" next day delivery. We hope to have this back up and running as soon as possible but in the meantime, our deliveries will take a little longer than usual (roughly 2-3 days).
