Picpoul is an ancient variety, native to the Languedoc of southern France. In the local dialect of the region the word “picpoul” translates as lip stinger. It’s often blended with other white varieties to add bright acidity, minerality and tropical richness. 

In 2015 Picpoul showed its potential. Prone to ripening late, grapes didn’t arrive at the crush pad until late September. Arriving grapes were whole cluster pressed, settled in tank and fermented in neutral oak, progressing through nearly 100% malo-lactic secondary fermentation, all the while with daily lees stirring. The finished wine has developed a pronounced rich mouth feel with distinct notes of ripe pineapple, lemon and toasted bread.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of ripe pineapple, grilled bread, hazelnuts, lemon. Flavors of a non sparkling version of late disgorged Champagne (rich toasty, with pineapple/lemon fruitiness).
