Pierre Qui Roule (Rolling Stone) is a selection of wines that are named for the smooth rounded stones that are prevalent throughout the Languedoc-Roussillon vineyards. These rolling stones reflect the abundant sunshine of the South of France, while their brothers below the surface improve the drainage and add to the minerality and complexity of the wines.

The grapes are transported to small, local wineries where PQR’s winemakers work to capture the true characteristics of each variety using modern wine-making techniques: low temperature fermentation, small oak barrels, etc., to enhance the fruit characteristics of the wines. The wines are then bottled in modern packaging with screw-cap closures to guarantee the flavors of the Languedoc are preserved in each and every bottle.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
PQR Sauvignon Blanc has a lovely pale yellow color. It is rich and aromatic with intense scents of fruit (gooseberry, passion fruit, green tomato, wild strawberry and lemon). It also displays floral nuances (honeysuckle), and mineral "flinty" scents from the limestone soil. It is very fresh on the palate with a good acidity and natural hints of CO2 which give its freshness. Rich, round and well balanced finish.
Vineyard Notes
This 100% varietal is cultivated on limestone soils of the Gard departement, in the plains of the Herault, and the Aude Valley. A part of the blend comes from the east of the Aude ( cool region).
Production Notes
Grapes are harvested early in the morning and transported rapidly to the winery. Pressing is made after a short period of skin contact (about 8 hours). The alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel vats at low temperatures (59 to 61° CF. The wine is aged on its fine lees for a few months in a carbon dioxide atmosphere. Early bottling. No malolactic fermentation.
Food Pairing Notes
Serve well chilled (46° F), as an aperitif, with seafood, fish or summer dishes (asparagus, mixed salads).
