In the glass, Sel et Sable has a pale straw colour with flecks of green. It has a fresh and floral nose. The palate is dry and refreshing. There are lemony citrus notes, tropical fruits, and a distinctive mineral edge (thanks to the closeness of the Mediterranean sea to the vineyards).

This classic French white wine is made from one of the oldest grapes in Languedoc. The grape variety is Piquepoul Blanc (although most people know it by the more common name Picpoul). Picpoul (or Picapoll as it was written) was first mentioned in a vineyard rental contract dating from the 14th century.

The classic food pairing with Picpoul is oysters from the Bassin de Thau. Though if you're less fussy, any oysters will do! High acidity makes it a good pair with anything deep-fried, it would be perfect with a fish supper.

Picpoul de Pinet

Picpoul de Pinet is a tiny appellation on the south coast of France. The region has six communes with the village of Pinet at its centre.

The vineyards are separated from the Mediterranean by the Bassin de Thau - France's second largest lake. And, the sea is ever present in the wines, from their salty minerality to the joy experienced when paired with the local oysters. It's no wonder the region's tagline is: Son terroir c'est la mer, translated as Our terroir is the sea.

More Information


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.
