Producer Profile

The Florensac terroir is one of the oldest planted vineyards near the French Mediterranean coast and unusually for the South of France, this is a specialist white wine producer, situated just 10km inland from the Eastern shores of the Bassin de Thau.

Viticulture

Grown on high ground in vineyards that are planted on clay and limestone soils, with sustainable agricultural practices rather than chemical intervention is at the heart of everything the Vignerons de Florensac do. Day time temperatures can be harsh so a machine harvest is carried out at night to avoid any oxidation of the grapes and to keep them cool.

Wine making

An eco-friendly producer, Oenologist Roques Stephane employs green techniques to control pests in the vineyard, and the Vignerons de Flornesac reduce carbon emissions by drawing energy from their vast bank of solar panels. These are used to power the refrigeration units required to keep the grapes and juice cool for maceration and fermentation. After maceration the grapes are gently pressed in a pneumatic press, and the juice fermented in stainless steel at low temperatures using cultured yeasts.

Oak Treatment

No oak treatment.
