Tasting Notes

Silver medal winning wine.

The literal translation of the name Picpoul is 'lip-stinger' on account of its refreshing nature, and this is certainly refreshing for all the right reasons.

A bright star from Southern France, with wonderful pear and apple fruit.

Heavenly match for seafood, especially shellfish.

Storage Instructions

To enjoy this wine at its best, drink within 1 year of purchase.

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2013 vintage, Jane MacQuitty said: "A zesty, lemony picpoul with bracing, briny, seafood-loving pizzazz that comes from sea breeze-cooled garrigue scrub vineyards overlooking the Étang de Thau lagoon".

Jane MacQuitty - The Times Saturday  10/05/2014

Of the 2013 vintage, Anthony Rose said: “This refreshing seafood-friendly dry white wine from Etang de Thau shows apple and pear aromas and boasts a citrus finish. As good with prawns as it is on a picnic.”

Anthony Rose - The Independent Magazine 17/05/2014

Of the 2013 vintage, Matthew Jukes said: "The Picpoul grape has made inroads into the UK wine scene recently and I'm very pleased about this, because it provides us with a genuine Mediterranean white wine experience which delivery great citrus flavours for all fish dishes."

Matthew Jukes - Weekend, Daily Mail 07/06/2014

Of the 2013 vintage, Victoria Moore said: "Saline, crisp, refreshing as a wave of salt water crashing on to a beach. Picpoul is the grape, and it’s made near a saltwater lagoon in the south of France. I was so pleased to find that the new vintage of a wine that seems to have become indispensable to so many fridges is bang on form. It earns the star buy sticker on the basis that you’re buying enough to qualify for the discount."

Victoria Moore - Weekend, Daily Telegraph 28/06/2014

Of the 2013 vintage, Olly Smith said: "Today Picpoul pops up in nearly every major supermarket. Tesco finest* Picpoul de Pinet is a delicately dazzling gem."

Olly Smith - Event Magazine, Mail on Sunday 29/06/2014

Of the 2013 vintage, Matthew Jukes said: "Picpoul is a cheeky little grape that until recently was known here only to those who'd holidayed in the South of France, but has suddenly and inexplicably become a fixture of our supermarket shelves. It is always inexpensive, dry and floral - welcome this delicously summery wine with open arms."
