2011 Hugues Beaulieu Picpoul de Pinet

SKU #1107391

A new vintage of one of our most popular white wines has arrived! From the Mediterranean vineyards not far from the French seaside town of Sete, comes the quintessential white for warm weather sipping. Fresh and fine aromas of grapefruit and exotic fruit with lime flavors and focusing acidity are all typical hallmarks of Picpoul. Picpoul means "lip stinger", which refers to its high acidity. This wine is fresh, clean, and fruity in style. A great value, 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. 12.5% abv.

This is the new vintage of one of our most popular selling white wines. This is definitely a live one! Great persistent acidity makes this lively from start to finish.Picpoul means " lip stinger" which speaks for the high acidity this wine holds. Great summer sipper.

The new vintage is here! A customer favorite every year. Picpoul is from just south of Montpellier and is better known as Folle Blanche. This is a racy white with tons of acidity surrounding flavors of grapefruit and citrus along with bitter mint. A lovely crisp summertime wine and great with seafood!

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity.
