Products of the domain : Mas Foulaquier
The Mas Foulaquier enjoys an exceptional location in Languedoc Roussillon. The domain extends to the extreme north of the appellation Pic Saint-Loup, itself the northernmost vineyard of the Mediterranean! This site gives the domain its characteristics: a stony clay-limestone soil and a great difference between the temperatures of the day and the night during the maturation of the grape varieties. It emerges from the wines in finesse and freshness, whether in red or white. Located in the commune of Claret, vignerons Pierre Jéquier - Blandine Chauchat flourish on these lands preserved chemicals. They apply the principles of biodynamics, convinced that this viticulture makes it possible to maintain the life of the soil and to strengthen the vines.
The expression of the terroir of Languedoc
At Mas Foulaquier, harvesting is done exclusively by hand, in boxes (20 kg). To remove the best of the aromas of their terroir, the winegrowers do not practice any sulphiting on the vintage and vinify the grape varieties separately. Fermentation temperature, fermentation period, aging: each vintage, each vintage has a specific treatment to obtain expressive wines of high quality. AOC Pic Saint-Loup wines from Mas Foulaquier have been certified organic for 10 years. Throughout the year, the work in the vineyards is done without chemicals: manual or mechanical weeding and natural contributions (horn dung, silica, decoctions).
