The vineyards of Picpoul lie on a limestone plateau basking in the rising sun, covered with perfumed garrigue, and scattered pine groves. Zazou comes from pure limestone soils on a slope open to the Mediterraneans warm breezes.
Fruit is selected in the vineyard then again at the cellar. Grapes are harvested at night to preserve the freshness and fruity aromas, then cold macerated, fermented at low temperature and stored in thermo-regulated vats prior to filtration and bottling on the estate.
Pairs well with any salty fare such as shellfish, seafood and grilled fish. It is a perfect match with oysters. It will also pair well with strong cheeses and charcuterie.
