This is Julie's flagship wine made from 100% Picpoul Blanc. The wine has a good body and round texture thanks to extended lees aging while retaining a "lip-smacking" acidity. "Picpoul" literally means "lip-stinger."  🦪🦪🦪

The Benau family bought their property, a 16th-century fortified farmhouse in the south of France, in 1980, and for the next twenty years or so, they sold all their grape production to the local co-op. In 1999, when their young daughter Julie returned home, they began bottling some of the wine on their own, and at her insistence, they are aiming for only the highest quality.

They are adapting their vineyard work and are making investments in the cellar with the goal of increasing the quality and, as the quality merits, bottling more wine.
