Domaine de Papolle

The prominent peppery aromas greet you on the nose, with a hint of spearmint. Warm red fruit and spices mellowed by the Merlot. Great structure leading to a good finish.

Frederic Piffard

At the heart of the Bas Armagnac vineyards, Domaine de Papolle origin dates back to the 17th century for its production of Armagnac. Today, their aromatic white wines occupy an important place in their product range. Domaine de Papolle is naturally opposed to commercial and industrial winemaking and their winemaker, Frederic Piffard, is proud of their innovative yet traditional methods. Frederic’s art and craftsmanship as a winemaker mean Domaine de Papolle produces fresh and aromatic wines, with festive charms that make you want to share!  

Having been involved in the music business, Frederic returned home to help with the harvest one year. The previous winemaker had just retired and Frederic found himself “thrown in” to the world of winemaking.

He is bringing his art into the vineyard and producing some stunning wine that is helping this region lure wine lovers south of Bordeaux. Frederic bought the Domaine in 2001 and it stands on a pretty plateau in the Gascogne region.

The soil here is a mixture of sand and limestone, which confers the double benefits of excellent drainage and minerality. Allied with climatic influences of the Atlantic Ocean, this provides a perfect environment for white wine production.  The area is still relatively unknown and there are few resources to guide the uninitiated towards the good winemakers.
