This winery was founded in 1932 and is located in the commune of Pomérols between the little town of Pézenas and the Mediterranean coast. The Picpoul vines are planted on clay/limestone soils a few miles from the Etang de Thau and its famous oyster beds.
Fragrant aromas of pear and white flowers leap enticingly from the glass leading to a palate that is crisp and lively with hints of grapefruit and exotic fruits. Known as the Muscadet of the South in France this is a thirst-quenchingly mineral wine that is the perfect choice as a seafood partner, particularly oysters!
"This old-vine cuvée (its members own 450 ha, so Beauvignac has plenty to choose from) is about as sappy and ripely green as Picpoul can get: springtime in liquid form, without much glycerol, majoring on ripe acidity and with a stony, pungent finish.
