In Stock & Ready To Ship!

Winner of a gold medal at the Concours Général Agricole Paris. A limpid, pale yellow colour with bright green reflections. Lively and fresh on the palate, revealing a beautiful richness supported by citrus flavours of lemon and lime. Nice length.

The grapes where harvested during the night to preserve the freshness. Fermentation was in stainless steel. The wine was racked, then aged for several months on fine lees to give a textural quality.

Pair this with fresh oysters or a seafood platter.

"With a nose of apples and citrus this is a classy example of what to expect from a well-made Picpoul. Zippy with terrific length (finish) it will be more than a match for shellfish, seafood and fish." Stephen Barrett

Languedoc-Rousillon, France

The Languedoc is a vast region stretching across much of the south and Mediterranean and is France`s single largest vineyard entity for its Vins de Pays wines.

Within the Languedoc lie several distinctly identified Vins de Pays (including the l`Aude, Gard and Hérault) and many appellations that maintain traditional local blends and styles such as Minervois, Corbières, Pic Saint Loup and Fitou.

Picpoul (Piquepoul)

An old French white wine variety that’s recently become increasingly popular for its lip-zapping white wines that pair perfectly with shellfish, oysters, and fried foods.

There are three versions, the dark-skinned Piquepoul noir, a very little grown Piquepoul gris, and the more common light-skinned Piquepoul blanc. The best examples come from the small Languedoc appellation of Picpoul de Pinet.
