2022 Les Vignerons de Florensac Picpoul de Pinet "Flores", Languedoc- Roussillon, France
ABOUT THIS WINE
The vineyard of Florensac is one of the oldest vineyards near the French Mediterranean Coast. The area is ancient, full of remains from being a Roman communication and trade route. The Vignerons (the winemakers) have a deep history and connection to the land. The varietal Piquepoul ("to bite the lips") has natural high acidity and produces wines with great brightness. This Picpoul de Pinet is exceptional. Salty seaside, lemon rind, white flowers, hibiscus, macadamia, peach pit on the nose. Peach fuzz and orange citrus fight for attention on a beautifully minerally and bright palate with saline undertones + lemony finish.
