Ch. de Fontarèche 2022 Piquepoul Noir Rose IGP Pays d'Oc
There are four hectares of the very rare Piquepoul Noir at Fontarèche, and this is the first time that Vincent has made a rosé exclusively from this fascinating grape, which lends itself so perfectly to pink wine. Faintly minty, with great backbone, the wine brings an original expression to the genre of southern French rosé that lifts it high above the crowd of banal if technically sound wines that drown the market. A real original.
