Domaine Piquemal is in the heart of the Roussillon A.O.C in Southern France bordering the east-coast of Spain to the north and at the entrance of the valley leading up to famous Maury (natural sweet wines).
The Roussillon yields lush and delicious wines mainly made from Grenache, Syrah, Carignan and authentic varieties to the region such as Grenache blanc, Grenache gris, Macabeu as well as Grenat and Muscat for the naturally fortified sweet wines.
Domaine Piquemal is managed by the 3rd generation talented Marie-Pierre Piquemal one of the more well known winegrowers from this region. She was elected winemaker of the year in 2018 by the famous french review "Le Guide Hachette". Their sustainable farming methods give rise to delicious and characterful wines true to their terroir.
The domaine comprises 50ha and natural ferments and very little use of new oak for maturation let the soils and climate from this region express themselves fully.
Why Having Domaine Piquemal With Terroirs Export?
I was in School in Beaune with Marie Pierre. I did not really know wines from Roussillon before to meet with her. I liked her wines and it has been very natural to start working together for some export market.
