Why this name?

The original name was Pique poule, but the official Picpoul de pinet appelation syndicate forbid Philippe to use this name (like a copyright infringement), so Philippe had no choice but to rename it. So it became Poupoule.

How was this cuvée born?

A fierce urge to work with this emblematic Languedoc grape.

Grapes were hand-harvested, then stored in a cold chamber before direct press.

Then it spent 6 months in barrels and stainless steel tanks, and bottled without filtration.
