2010 Château Petit Roubié Picpoul de Pinet

SKU #1066236

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.

Picpoul can be a welcome drink in the warmer summer months: crisp, granny smith apple and citrus fruit, balanced acids. Some cheaper versions are a bit sloppy and less refreshing; this one is firmer, more mineral, and very refreshing in deed. Cool it down and drink it up.

Quite high acidity. Very light and crisp. Definite mineral & floral notes.

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
