Muscat de Rivesaltes
The wine-grower partner: Domaine Piquemal
The climate of the Roussillon Valley allowed the proper development of numerous grounds and soils. It’s in this very specific region that we fell for a delicious one of a kind Muscat that is harvested at night. Two different types, the Muscat Petit Grain and Muscat d’Alexandrie, are blended together to create this refreshing wine.
Ever since its creation, the domain is a family property. Marie-Pierre and her husband, current owners, were able to highlight their stunning soil to allow their wines to be famously known in France and abroad as sure value of the Languedoc-Roussillon region.
The wine and its terroir
Marie-Pierre and her team harvest their muscat grapes by night to keep their fresh and protect them from oxidation. The grapes come from two separates parcels and one of them receive no chemical treatment. Very concerned by their environmental print, the Estate works in a sustainable model and is in Organic conversion. After harvest, each plot is vinified in its own tank to allow several possibilities during blending. The acidity and alcohol are kept at their lowest to ensure a fresh and refreshing wine. Delicate nose, white fruits notes balanced between grace and lightness, Initio’s Muscat is a wine that is not done surprising you…
