2007 Picpoul de Pinet, Hugues Beaulieu "La Petite Frog" 3L Bag in Box (Cannot Ship)
100% Picpoul here, aka Folle Blanche, which probably doesn’t help you in terms of understanding just how refreshing and snappy this wine is. Pale yellow color with green tints. Fresh and fine aromas of grapefruit and exotic fruit, with typical focusing acidity, these are hallmarks of Picpoul. 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. French bistro white in a box! Great for large outdoor concerts, picnics, you name it! 12.5% abv.
