"A crisp white, showing good zip to the apple and green pear flavors, with a hint of lemon-lime. Stony notes mark the finish. Drink now. 111,000 cases made." (WS)

"These are two super, crisp, unoaked, fruit-driven wines, including what is often called the Muscadet of Southern France, the 2010 Picpoul de Pinet. This is a co-op, but a high quality one, and this fresh wine is almost the vinous equivalent of gin and tonic. It has notes of lime skin intermixed with other fresh citrus in a lively, fresh, very light-bodied, naked form. Drink it over the next year, preferably with shellfish. " (WA)

Winery Notes:
Vinification:
Vinification: Skin maceration for a few hours, pneumatic draining and pressing, double cold decanting, temperature controlled fermentation.

100% Picpoul, aka Folle Blanche. Pale yellow color with green tints. Fresh and fine aromas of grapefruit and exotic fruit. Lime flavors, with typical focusing acidity, are hallmarks of Picpoul. Our best 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 & seafood.
