Campaucels Jean le Blanc
Campaucels Jean le Blanc is also known by its fuller name Picpoul de Pinet “Jean le Blanc”, Domaine de Campaucels. This wine is an almost yellow green colour. There are flavours of yellow and green citrus: lemon, lime and grapefruit; notes of hawthorn and acacia. It is so fresh in the mouth, it is almost nervous.
Only 1 hectare of organically grown vines produce the annual 6000 bottles of this very beautiful AOC Picpoul de Pinet. It is a rare wine that we would really recommend trying.
Cathy Do created her 12-hectare estate next door in Montagnac. The vineyard is made up of young vines (10 years old), with no less than 13 grape varieties. She named her wines after the names of the migratory birds that stop on her “Field of the Birds” within her zone “Natura 2000”.
Campaucels in Occitan, extends over the scrub lands of the Natura 2000 area “Montagnac-Villeveyrac” special birds. The tribe elders way back in the 13th century perfectly named this place: it is still and always a refuge for nesting birds. To preserve the extraordinary biodiversity of this habitat, Cathy Do considers that it is imperative to work this land using organic farming techniques. She wants to work the seasons, without disturbing the balance of life and nature.
