Fresh, dry whites - PICPOUL DE PINET, Domaine Font Mars. Languedoc, S France

2019 PICPOUL DE PINET, Domaine Font Mars. Languedoc

Bin: 84
Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Area: From their UK agent, Thorman Hunt:
"Jean-Baptiste de Clock runs this superb 8-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 January after the harvest. A perfect example of good single domaine Picpoul with just a single gram of residual sugar left in the wine. The wine comes in the traditional tall green bottle and is bottled under screwcap. A big step up in quality from the rather neutral Picpoul that comes from the larger co- operatives in the area, this wine has plenty of flavour and real character. A perfect apéritif and a great match with all seafood."
Old Bridge Rating: Simply the best example we have tried.
Press Reviews: 91 points Financial Times - "This Picpoul de Pinet is a super refreshing wine packed full of complex fruit flavours and moreish acidity. The grapes for this Domaine Font-Mars are harvested in the middle of September to obtain full ripeness and then picked at night in order to preserve their refreshing quality. A beautiful light white wine, your perfect summer accompaniment."
