Vignerons de Florensac L'Arete de Thau Piquepoul Terret

Cave de Florensac “L’Arete” de Thau Piquepoul & Terret


  • Sustainable agricultural and winemaking are at the heart of everything Florensac does. This wine is vegan friendly. They have been certified as an HVE sustainable producer since 2021.
  • The Côtes de Thau area is a remarkable place as it offers a variety of landscape with beaches, the garrigue, the sea and, of course, the lagoon.
  • The average age of the vines is 15-20 years. The elevation is close to sea level and the soils are made up of clay and limestone.
  • Crafted in this Mediterranean environment, this Cuvée is the perfect representation of the terroir, a blend of local grapes (Piquepoul and Terret), an aromatic profile and a crisp style.

Varietal Composition: 55% Piquepoul, 45% Terret

Elaboration: Farming practices include mechanical weeding (no chemicals), low chemical inputs, sexual confusion, prophylactic cultural methods, and high trellises (1,8m-2m) and more photosynthesis.

The grapes are mechanically harvested by night, 100% destemmed, placed in a pneumatic press, cold settled at 41°F, fermented in a temperature controlled stainless steel tank for 10-15 days at 64,4°F. The wine is aged 3 months in stainless steel tank on fine lees with stirring, bentonite fined and tangential filtration.

Tasting Notes: A delicate nose revealing aromas of citrus and white flesh fruits, typical of the grape variety. This white wine opens with a lively and fresh entry, then balanced and fruity. Persistent finish with a note of grapefruit and lemon.




Established in the crossroads of a Domitian communication and trade route, and the ancient Roman ports of Sete and Agde, Florensac is one of the oldest vineyard sites on the Mediterranean coast line. Today, les Vignerons de Florensac (winegrowers of Florensac) strength lies in the 260 growers that contribute to the Cave providing both the highest quality of grapes in the region and contributions to building of Vinipolis, their oenological tourism project.
