2014 Château Petit Roubié Picpoul de Pinet

SKU #1263843 Wine Spectator

 Lightly plump in texture, this white leads off with minerally notes of oyster shell and sea salt. The underlying citrus and yellow apple fruit lingers into a fennel- and floral-accented finish. Refreshing. (GS, Web-2015)

K&L Notes

Say bonjour to your summertime 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 to open screwcap too!

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.
