Vinified in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, the Moulin de Gassac Picpoul de Pinet 2022 is a lovely pale gold colour in the glass. The nose is fresh and crisp with aromas of yellow flowers and citrus fruits, whilst the palate is fuller than you would expect, fleshy yet fresh, with a lovely long finish and mouthwatering acidity. This is a youthful wine for early drinking.
The Moulin de Gassac label was created in the early 90s by the father and founder of Mas de Daumas Gassac, Aimé Guibert. As a result of his discovery of the exceptional amphitheatre site of Villeveyrac, an unusual partnership was born. Following the introduction of the vine pull schemes, he began to work with the individual vine growers in the area with a view to saving its plots. The Moulin de Gassac wines played a decisive role in preventing the disappearance of this terroir. Thereafter, Mas de Daumas Gassac confirmed the wines’ unique identity with their own signature: Moulin de Gassac.
