Beautiful acidity balanced by the ripeness given by this very dry vintage which is particularly successful in the piquepoul. The nose is expressive, floral on acacia, lily and lemon blossom. The palate is tender, tangy and succulent.

To be enjoyed with seafood, for an aperitif or with a seafood platter, cooked oysters and all the traditional Sète dishes; tielle, stuffed mussels, rouille of cuttlefish, bourride of monkfish. Perfect with grilled fish or simply with marinière mussels. Also goes well with fish soup, sushi, scallops, grilled prawns, lobster or lobster...

Producer Info

Domaine Félines Jourdan is a family estate created in 1983 in Mèze on the edge of the Bassin de Thau, facing Sète. The family's winemaking know-how goes back to the grandfather of Claude Jourdan, the current winemaker. The proximity of the Mediterranean Sea allows the vines to benefit from a cooler climate than in the rest of Languedoc. Three terroirs, various soils and microclimates, ten well-adapted grape varieties. Claude took over from his mother, her style: fresh and lively wines worked in vats in order to preserve their fruity characters while preserving the environment.

Mecanic harvest at night to preserve the oxydation. Pneumatic pressure immediatly ; the juices is refreshed and racked. Than the fermentation begin for 3 around 3 weeks. Every day the fermentation is controlled and the juice taste. The temperature are controlled between 15 and 18 °C. After fermentation, the wine stay on the lees for a few weeks to get more roundness.
