From oyster country, behind the Etang de Thau in the Languedoc, this is a bone-dry, fruity white made from two local grape varieties that blend well together. Picpoul is better known and gives body and roundness, while terret adds a bit of grip and herby flavours. Refreshing with clean, citrus flavours.

Cave de Florensac

The Cave de Forensac was established in 1934 when local growers banded together for the common good, pooling resources and know-how in a classic model springing up throughout France in that economically troubled decade. Give or take some casualties among co-ops who were unable or unwilling to adapt to changes, it has been a model that has stood the test of time. Florensac is s co-op which responded to changing circumstances over the years. Though the cellars are in the original building the equipment and the winemaking is very much up to date, full of up-to-date stainless steel tanks and with a modern tasting room for visitors. For over eighty-years the caves have been known locally as ‘the lungs of the village’, a vital part of this Herault community.

Their vineyards are on high ground some 10 metres from the great lagoon of the Bassin de Thau, planted on clay and limestone soils farmed employing sustainable viticultural practices and using no chemical intervention. To make the most of the fruit they harvest quickly, by machine and at night when temperatures are coolest. At the winery, itself covered with an array of solar panels, the grapes and must are kept cool prior to fermentation and stainless steel is used for fermentation itself and maturation, emphasising the fresh flavours of their grapes.
