From a family estate established since 1744, altogether 30 ha of vineyards, 12 ha devoted to the Picpoul. 100% Picpoul grape grows on soils containing a max of 54% pure limestone, the rest being calcareous clay. The vines are on average 45 years old, cared for the traditional way.
This beautiful, lean fresh wine exhibits white flowers aromas, pear flavours and citrus zest, full in mouth with a lingering fresh finish. Finesse and smoothness are key features of Cuvée Ludovic Gaujal. Oftern referred to as the ‘muscadet of the Midi’ if you are a fan of deliciously refreshing, fragrant wines, this is certainly a wine to behold.
Did you know? The name Picpoul derives from the French “Picque”, meaning sharp, and poul, meaning lips, translating as “lip stinger”. Great for those Sauvignon Blanc fans out there – as well as being a fabulous food wine. Fresh seafood, and a glass ( or two ) or Picpoul? Perfect!
