Piquette is a low alcohol wine traditionally made for vineyard workers to quench their thirst during or after a hard day’s work in the sun.
The recipe is simply:
After pressing the grape pomace to extract the remainder of its juice, you pour over some spring water and let it ferment a second time.
The result is a light, juicy and extremely refreshing wine.
It’s not a wine whose aromatic complexity you will dwell on for very long. Instead it’s a wine for immediate enjoyment. And a wine that you may choose to drink on occasions where you’d usually reach for a beer. A beverage for good times.
Piquette is fun!
And so is Fabien’s one liter of ‘Piquette Oldschool’.

Just have a look at the bottle…
– which displays one of six different labels…
– with one of six cheeky underpants designs…
– one of each in a case.
