Picpoul is at home as a native grape at the Domaine La Croix Gratiot located near the Mediterranean shore. Night-harvesting preserves the fruity aromas and floral notes of this crisp white wine. Expect lively acidity with bright flavors of citrus and green tree fruit. The salty sea breeze produces a dry but wonderfully aromatic wine.

This wine is a natural fit with oysters, and also comes alive with other seafood, shellfish, and dishes such as fish casserole. Picpoul de Pinet is also an excellent aperitif enjoyed on its own.

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 slight hint of the sea.
Production Notes
Night-harvesting protects the grapes from oxidation and preserves the aromas and freshness. The grapes are fermented at low temperatures and aged on fine lees.
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 Picpoul de Pinet, Anais proves she is more than capable of upholding the family tradition.
Food Pairing Notes
This wine is a natural fit with oysters, and also comes alive with other seafood, shellfish, and dishes such as fish casserole. Picpoul de Pinet is also an excellent aperitif enjoyed on its own.
