Jadix is an extraordinary white wine made from the indigenous Picpoul grape in the Picpoul de Pinet region in the South of France. The vineyard is located in an area stretching along the string of lakes that make up the Thau lagoon, and bound by the ancient fishing villages of Agde, Pézenas and Sète. These “marine” vineyards” are among the oldest in the Mediterranean. Because of their prized location close to the sea, the vineyards are planted on a plateau of fossilized oyster beds, limestone, gravel and quartz soil and benefit from a sunny and dry climate tempered with the breezes from the Mediterranean. An elaborate subsoil network of fresh water and salt water conduits under the vineyards nourish the vines and contribute to the unique flavor of Jadix. Picpoul, which means “lip stinger” because of the naturally high acidic level, is a fruity, fresh, wine with delicious and slightly saline flavors. It is often described as the “Muscadet of the Languedoc-Roussillon”.
The grapes are harvested at night starting mid-August to retain flavor and freshness. The vineyard is composed of old vines of 25 years old in average. Cold maceration and fermentations at low temperatures. Aging on the lees to add smoothness and complexity. Certified Vegan. Organic practices.
