Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2015 vintage, Jamie Goode said: “Lively, fresh and tasty, this offers bright pear, grape and white-peach fruit. It really shows off its clean fruitiness well and it’s no surprise that Picpoul is touted as a great seafood wine.”

Jamie Goode - S Magazine, Sunday Express 27/03/2016

Of he 2015 vintage, Jane MacQuitty said:"Delicious, tangy, lemon twist and sea breeze scented picpoul de pinet, the Midi’s answer to muscadet makes a cracking winter seafood white."

Jane MacQuitty - The Times  12/11/2016

Of the 2015 vintage, Gemma Aldridge said: "Refreshing dry and unoaked, this French white is a little reminder of the summer as the dark nights creep in. A lot of pep, this is a perfect aperitif or would go very well with seafood."

Gemma Aldridge - Sunday Mirror  13/11/2016

Background

History

Founded in 1932, the co-operative currently has around 350 members with a quality approach at its centre. The vineyard benefits from a Mediterranean climate tempered by maritime influences, and extends between Garrigue and Etang de Thau, in sunny terraces called Costières, hence the name "Costières de Pomérols"

Regional info

Over the last 25 years, the fortunes of Languedoc-Rousillon have been transformed largely due to the introduction of the Vin de Pays classification in 1979. This exciting region continues to see a flow of investment from the Bordelais and others, which has enabled the evolution of the qualitative pyramid to continue.
