Knock me over with a feather, what’s not to like about this wine! The 2018 vintage is fresh as a daisy and living up to all the characteristics that we expect from Picpoul – perfectly balanced, crisp, with a lovely viscosity and fruit/herb flavours. Organically grown from very old vines, this Picpoul is full of character and worth every penny.
Interesting note: Picpoul (or Piquepoul) is one of the oldest grape varieties in Languedoc. Such is the popularity of Picpoul that at one point it is reported that the French considered grubbing up the entirety of Sauvignon Blanc across the country and replacing it with Picpoul. Now there’s an idea… Sadly, we cannot see it happening!
