A unique white wine from near a shellfish-rich lagoon, great with seafood and fab on its own. Claude Jourdan's vineyard runs down to the Bassine de Thau, where the roots are where the vineyard is at the highest altitude on the estate, 50 m, yet still within 2 km of the sea. It benefits from the cooling influence of the water and sea breezes, retaining Claude Jourdan's style of very fruity Piquepoule with good minerality and excellent balance. No oak is used to maintain the simplicity of Claude's wines. Ten weeks on fine lees adds complexity and depth.

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."
