2011 Hugues Beaulieu Picpoul de Pinet
A new vintage of one of our most popular white wines has arrived! From the Mediterranean vineyards not far from the French seaside town of Sete, comes the quintessential white for warm weather sipping. Fresh and fine aromas of grapefruit and exotic fruit with lime flavors and focusing acidity are all typical hallmarks of Picpoul. Picpoul means "lip stinger", which refers to its high acidity. This wine is fresh, clean, and fruity in style. A great value, this wine impresses novices and hardened geeks equally. Known as 'the Muscadet of the South' in France, this is to the Mediterranean coast of France what Albariño is to northwest Spain...the default wine for fresh shellfish and seafood. 12.5% abv.
