Deep ruby in colour this wine offers a complex nose, combining red fruits and spices. Remarkably delicate, it is supple, with smooth, harmonious tannins and a long, fruity finish. Drink with red meats or poultry in sauce.
Grapes are systematically de-stemmed prior to temperature-regulated fermentation in cuve, with a long (4 week) maceration period. Maturation takes place in cuve.
Floriane and Olivier Azan bought Petit Roubié, a 60ha estate in the AOC of Picpoul de Pinet, in 1981, converting the entire production to organic practices in 1995. It remains to this day the only officially certified organic winery in the region. A full range of varietal wine (IGP Pays d'Hérault) is available from the estate - all bursting with bright, fresh fruit and vitality - but it's upon the Picpoul de Pinet that Petit Roubié has built its enviable reputation. White blossom, yellow fruits, spices and classic saline finish makes this wine amongst the top from the appellation.
