2011 La Domitienne Picpoul de Pinet

SKU #1111069

The name La Domitienne comes from the Via Domitia, the road linking ancient Rome with Cadiz, Spain. This historic route, which allowed the Romans to control all of southern Gaul (which is now modern day France) bisects the Languedoc appellation of Picpoul de Pinet. This crisp and snappy white excudes aromas of white flowers (acacia & hawthorn) and lemon zest. A subtle underlying minerality makes for an ultra refreshing white that will put a kick in your step and a smile on your face. Try it with grilled snapper, oysters on the half-shell or ceviche with mango salsa.

Refreshing, clean, light and absolutely delicious. The Domitienne Picpoul has nice citrus and very light floral aromas, followed by citrus flavors and a nice crisp finish. It will go well with salads or light foods.

Classic Picpoul de Pinet! Zippy and fresh, with tangy lemon and citrus aromas and flavors and that characteristic prickle on the tongue. Surprising minerality and lenth here too. Paired with fresh fish, shellfish, or seafood, this is way too easy to drink...

Country:

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.
