J&O Piquepoul Extra Brut

Availability: In stock

Made in the traditional method, the style is light and fresh, and this is a sparkler that you can enjoy on any occasion, all year round. It has a hint of salinity, coming from the proximity of the vineyards to the Mediterranean, and this gives it a unique charm. The bubbles are fine and persistent.

This wine comes from the oyster producing region of the Thau lagoon, thus we recommend you to enjoy it with its natural partner, oysters, but it will also be a great pairing to lobster, crabs, and fish dishes.  J&O is also very nice served chilled, on its own, as an aperitif!

J&O Piquepoul Extra Brut
More information:

Jeanjean and its 31-year old partner, l’Ormarine winery, have developed a sparkling wine made out of the Piquepoul grape variety. Piquepoul is a very unique grape, grown in the South of France, around the amazing region of “Etang de Thau “ (Thau lagoon). The story of this grape variety is quite unusual, and legend has it that the grapes were very well appreciated by the hens (poules) that loved eating them (hens pick their food with their beak, hence the name “pique-poule”).

At the beginning of the 1950s, only about two hundred hectares of picpoul were surviving, in spite of being a native grape variety. More productive grapes had been planted instead. But thanks to the admirable job of a couple of growers, independent or working in the 2 cooperatives of the region, and thanks to the partnership of Jeanjean with one of them, l’Ormarine, the interest for this unique grape and wine has risen again, and nowadays, around 1500 hectares are planted with the grape.
