Vignerons de Florensac Picpoul de Pinet 2019 - Loire Valley, France
Varietals: 100% Picpoul de Pinet
We adore the “lip-stinger” Picpoul de Pinet. New to our palates, Florensac’s spanking fresh 2018 Picpoul casts a brilliant green-tinged lemon-gold color in the glass followed by aromas of freshly shaved fennel, quince, lemon zest, and chalky soil. Brisk and bracing on the attack, the Picpoul fleshes out mid-plate with suggestions of freshly squeezed lime juice, Bartlett pear, lemongrass, and flinty minerals. Clean, fresh, and bristling with energy, the wine reprises its pear, citrus, and mineral notes on its pure, limestone-driven finish.
Established in the crossroads of a Domitian communication and trade route, and the ancient Roman ports of Sete and Agde, Florensac is one of the oldest vineyard sites on the Mediterranean coastline. Today, les Vignerons de Florensac (winegrowers of Florensac) strength lies in the 260 growers that contribute to the Cave providing both the highest quality of grapes in the region and contributions to building of Vinipolis, their oenological tourism project.
