Domaine Font-Mars Vineyards in Pinet

Jean-Baptiste de Clock runs the superb 8-hectare Domaine Font-Mars property right in the heart of Picpoul de Pinet country, 38km south west of Montpellier, very close to the town of Mèze and right by the coast. The grapes are picked manually at night when it is much cooler, destemmed and fermented at a low temperature for 20 days. The wine is then kept in stainless steel tanks and bottled in January after the harvest. A perfect example of good single domaine Picpoul with just a single gram of residual sugar left in the wine.

The wine comes in the traditional tall green bottle and is bottled under screwcap. A big step up in quality from the rather neutral Picpoul that comes from the larger co- operatives in the area, this wine has plenty of flavour and real character. A perfect apéritif and a great match with all seafood.
