The Wine:

The grapes were harvested at night to ensure they were cool when they arrived at the winery. This meant that the delicate fruit character was kept fresh before pressing, and the aromatic style of the wine was guaranteed. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks which ensured no oxidation of the precious stone fruit character.

This wine is pale yellow in colour with green hints. There are vibrant citrus aromas of lemon and floral notes on the nose. The palate is full but extremely well balanced, with fresh Picpoul acidity and floral bouquet. The finish is long and mouthwatering, with complexity of candied fruit, spice and minerality.

Further Info:

Christophe Muret of Domaine de Castelnau was a melon farmer before he began growing grapes in 1997. Located close to Pézenas, halfway between the Massif Central and Mediterranean Sea, Domaine de Castelnau Garenne comprises a 160-hectare estate that benefits from fresh sea breezes, preserving acidity and freshness in the grapes. The word ‘Garenne’ in the domaine’s name, references the wild rabbits Christophe would see in his vines when he first started as a vigneron. Thankfully these are a rarer sight these days, but they still remind him of his winemaking journey.

As a farmer, whether of melons or grapes, Christophe has always employed sustainable methods to maintain a healthy soil structure and balanced ecosystem. His vines are planted on a combination of limestone, clay and loam soils, whose water retention helps prevent hydric stress in the vineyards during hot vintages.

South African-born winemaker François Prinsloo ensures the quality of Christophe’s farming shines through in the finished wines. Grapes are mechanically harvested at night to retain freshness and minimise phenolics in the wines before fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks. The ‘Garenne’ Picpoul de Pinet displays an expressive floral nose with a core of vibrant stone fruit.
