Domaine Font-Mars Picpoul de Pinet 2021

Grapes for the Domaine Font-Mars Picpoul de Pinet are all picked by hand at night when it is much cooler, de-stemmed 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. The wine comes in the traditional tall green bottle yet it is a big step up in quality from the rather neutral Picpoul that comes from the larger co- operatives in the area. White peach and pineapple aromas lead onto the palate which is lively and fresh with plenty of flavour and real character. A perfect apéritif and a great match with all seafood.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 

 

Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.

“This Picpoul de Pinet is a super refreshing wine packed full of complex fruit flavours and moreish acidity. The grapes for this Domaine Font-Mars are harvested in the middle of September to obtain full ripeness and then picked at night in order to preserve their refreshing quality. A beautiful light white wine, your perfect summer accompaniment.”
