A flavourful, dry Chardonnay from an exotic location. Apples and pears slake the thirstiest of palates while apricots and orange blossom hint at sunnier climes—a perfect white wine to remind you of summer. Ten weeks on fine lees adds lovely texture. Claude Jourdan practices 'agriculture raisonnée', always respecting nature in her farming methods. The Proximity of her vineyards to the Étang de Thau Lagoon explains the affinity with shellfish, as both the vines and the oysters and mussels share the same growing environment. The sea is also a cooling influence, allowing greater complexity and freshness in the wine, avoiding flabbiness, and keeping the wine beautifully balanced.

Claude Jourdan

"Claude Jourdan runs this estate close to Meze, the oyster capital of Southwest France. The Domaine was started in 1983 by Claude’s mother and uncle, and some of the Grenache and Carignan vines date back to then. Much of Claude's outstanding Picpoul comes from 50 year old vines from her grandfather’s vineyard about 20 kilometres away. The vineyard runs down to the Bassin de Thau lagoon, where oyster and mussel beds reminded us of Bantry Bay. This explains the superb affinity of her Picpoul de Pinet with shellfish. The moisture-laden breezes are perfect for growing grapes and keep the temperatures a good five or six degrees lower than vineyards only a kilometre away. This cooling influence gives the grapes a chance to develop some complexity."
