2010 Château Petit Roubié Picpoul de Pinet
Say bonjour to your springtime white! Picpoul de Pinet is considered the "Muscadet of the South." Grown just meters from the oyster beds of the Bassin de Thau, the wine marries perfectly with fish and shellfish. Picpoul (also known as Folle Blanche or Gros Plant) means "lip stinger," which refers to the high acidity of its must. Great with oysters, assorted fruit de mer or grilled seafood. This wine is crisp and bright, with with subtle floral and mineral notes on the nose. Bracing acidity backs up a wine with surprising breed for this price point. Château Petit Roubié's Picpoul embraces all of the aforementioned qualities, and is made from 100% certified organic grapes. It is bottled with an easy open screwcap too! 12.2% abv.
