Chateau St. Martin de La Garrique Picpoul de Pinet 2021
Located between Béziers and Montpellier, near the Mediterranean Sea, the Château Saint-Martin-de-la-Garrigue extends over 63 hectares of vineyards, surrounded by 110 ha of pine forests, scrubland and olive groves. The vineyard is spread over around forty plots, planted on east-facing slopes. This position gives the vines their important exposure to the sun, and also to a humid climate, thanks to the sea breezes. The summer heat is also tempered by the location of the estate at slight altitude. The vines grow on two types of soil: red sand-gravel on sandstone and brown limestone on soft limestone.
Château Saint-Martin-de-la-Garrigue is a harmonious unity between nature's exuberance and human work. Each generation of wine-makers has left its mark. Rich and varied, the estate's range presents wines from 18 varieties (10 red and 8 whites). The whole estate uses sustainable and integrated vine growing methods, certified by Terra Vitis. The wine-making process is based around traditional methods, but with cutting-edge tools. On average, the estate produces 300,000 bottles per year, sold in France and all over the world.
Refined floral and mineral undertones, lively citrus aromas. On the palate, density, freshness and lush roundness. Perfect for oysters, steam clams and seafood or enjoy on its own.
