2020 Picpoul `Sel et de Sable`, Languedoc, France
Made from one of the oldest grape in Languedoc (first mentioned in the 17th century), Piquepoule means picked by the hen. The Picpoul de Pinet vineyard area runs along the southern French coast, separated from the Mediterranean sea only by the Bassin de Thau, France`s second largest lake famous for its oysters. Picpoul is a bright straw yellow in colour with a very fresh and floral nose. The palate is dry and refreshing with notes of citrus, some tropical fruits and a distinctive mineral edge.
12.5% ABV. Suitable for Vegans and Vegetarians.
The classic match for this wine is oysters farmed from the Bassin de Thau.
