L’Arete de Thau, Côtes de Thau

Rich in ancestral know-how, Les Vignerons de Florensac strives to showcase the best of each variety and every cuvée, while respecting nature and the terroir. The vineyards cover 670 hectares which overlook the Mediterranean Sea and are bordered by the Étang de Thau, the largest lagoon in the Languedoc.  Terret, an ancient native grape variety of the Languedoc Roussillon, along with Piquepoul, also a native variety of the region, both produce crisp, dry white wines.

The vineyards are cultivated using sustainable cultivation methods such as the use of sexual confusion for 70% of the vineyards and weeding for 20%, thus reducing the use of sprays. 90% of the vineyard is certified HVE3 and 50 hectares are organically farmed.

Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks to retain the pure fruit before being racked and aged on the fine lees.

L’Arete de Thau is pale yellow with green hues. It is a lovely and fresh Piquepoul Terret blend and offers plentiful aromas of grapefruit and citrus fruit, with a lively, vibrant palate and crisp finish.
