DOMAINE GAUJAL
Picpoul de Pinet 2016 AOP
Estate bottled
 

Domaine de Peyreficade is owned by the Gaujal family since 1743. This beautiful Estate is run now by Laurent Gaujal whose love for art can be felt in the labels he created for his wine. The entire vineyard covers 30 hectares, including 12 of Piquepoul (Piquepoul is the name of the varietal, Picpoul the name of the wine)

The vineyard is situated in the heart of Picpoul de Pinet's appellation, on fairly flat grounds, very close to the Mediterranean. The entire appellation is fairly narrow, and linked to the peculiarity of its soil.

 
Soil

The local Piquepoul grape, on average 44 years old, sits on 12 hectares and is cared for the traditional way : goblet pruning, ploughing of the soil.

The soil is calcareous clay with a very high percentage of pure limestone (54%). This special feature may be described as the "secret" of Picpoul, as it gives it this very personal flinty taste.

 
Wine making

Harvesting is performed with grapes that are totally ripe (between 13 and 15.5°). The 2016 vintage was harvested at 14.0°. The purpose is to keep as much as possible the soil specificity.

Vinification is run at low temperature (17°) after careful racking. Bottling is being made in the second half of February.

 
Drinking Advice

Bouquet of white flowers and lime. The taste is long lasting, very flowery although not sweet, with a touch of flint. Later it will evolve towards almond and exotic fruit.

Serve chilled. A wine that will suit perfectly the seafood and oysters produced so close to its territory, in the Mediterranean. Try it also with asparagus or delicate white meat like lamb. It will also match dry goat cheese, or can be enjoyed on its own.
