The name Picpoul, or Piquepoul, means ‘lip-stinger’ and is a direct reference to the vibrant natural acidity of this grape. Grown in clay and limestone soils, the wines of Picpoul de Pinet are always bright and refreshing, making them perfect for oysters or grilled fish. Expect notes of apple, lemon citrus and a salty mineral edge, with herbal accents.
