The Rincome family has farmed the land in Pinet for generations, mostly cultivating Chanterais melons, similar to small, sweet cantaloupes. The family also has 30 hectares of vines, which they started bottling in 2004, instead of selling grapes to the local co-op. Anaïs Rincome took control of the estate a few years later in 2007.
The vines grow on clay & limestone soils, protected by northern winds by a line of hills, while maritime breezes from the Mediterranean temper the summer heat. Piquepoul grapes are harvested at night to preserve the bright acidity & freshness. Fermentation takes place in steel at controlled temperatures, before aging 4-5 months.
Fresh & lively, with pears & citrus, stone fruit & ripe melon. A lovely saline minerality and slight roundness beautifully balance the bright acidity.
