Brilliant and clear, this pure Picpoul Blanc wine presents a fresh, structured palate with a lingering minerality to the finish. Relish the expressive nose of citrus, grapefruit, and kumquats. The domaine practices biodynamic and reasoned agriculture, working in harmony with nature and the environment. 

Pair this invigorating cuvée with sushi, wild Alaskan salmon, and cuttlefish cooked on the plancha with parsley-lemon sauce.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
This domaine works in harmony with nature and the environment. Thirty hectares of vineyards are situated between clay-limestone hills and the Bassin de Tau, on the Mediterranean Sea. A stream runs through the vineyard, supporting the biodiversity of the area. Trade winds caress the vines carrying scents of the garrigue and a hint of the sea. The Mediterranean climate allows the grapes to fully mature and express the typicity of the region.
Production Notes
Picpoul Blanc grapes are harvested from one biodynamically managed vineyard late in the season. Late night harvesting limits oxidation. The fruit then undergoes aging on fine lees for five months.
Winemaker Notes
Yves and Hugues Ricome built their winery in 2004 on land their family has been farming for generations. In 2007, they passed on the winemaking torch to their daughter, Anais Ricome. With 2019 Brechallune, Anais proves she is more than capable of upholding the family tradition.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair this invigorating cuvée with sushi, wild Alaskan salmon, and cuttlefish cooked on the plancha with parsley-lemon sauce.
Other Notes
