A few glimpses from the Domaine Piquemal. The Domaine Piquemal winery is located in Espira de l Agly, in the Agly valley, in Roussillon in the south of France.
It is a family vineyard that is today run by the brother-sister team Marie-Pierre and Franck Piquemal.
We’re tasting different wines in their tasting room: Cuvee Justin Piquemal with the appellation Cote de Roussillon. It is a blend of cabernet sauvignon, grenache and mourvedre. It is unoaked and made in a fresh and fruity style. Then we taste a more traditional southern French wine, Cuvee des Terres Grillees, coming from a patch of soil that is very dark, almost black, which is the reason behind the name (that means burned soil). This wine is a bit more complex and is a Cote de Roussillon Villages appellation.
We also make a short excursion out into the vineyard to look at the Burned Soil, a vineyard that makes for very early ripening grapes.
