Piquepoul Blanc

The Hecht et Bannier Languedoc Blanc is an organic blend of two southern French varietals which complement each other: Picpoul Blanc and Roussanne. Bordering the Etang de Thau along the Mediterranean coast, they have the benefit of relatively cool terroirs on which vines “stare” at the sea. Throughout the summer this mild maritime influence enables the grapes to preserve their natural acidity. Both varietals being late ripening grapes they fit the Mediterranean climatic conditions. They allow the aromatic flavors preservation until the harvest at the end of September or early October for some Picpoul. This wine is aged 100% in stainless steel tank.

Additional Information

Our wine is a blend of heritage varietals that complement each other. Grapes come from organic vineyards bordering the Mediterranean Sea which benefit this cool maritime growing conditions allowing the grapes to ripen fully and still preserve fresh, healthy acidity. Piquepoul blanc brings mineral « tang » and energy to the blend ; Chardonnay brings orange and lemon, honeysuckle and acacia notes.

We love this wine as an aperitif with tapas, clams, oysters and all manner of freshly grilled fish, perhaps drizzled with some olive oil, salt and pepper.
