    Winemaker's Notes:

    Greenish-yellow in color, this wine offers a discreet but very fine and floral nose. Full flavors, long and rich. There is a mixture of floral aromas mixed with nuances of banana and citrus fruits (citronella and grapefruit) with a peach and apple-vanilla finish. Neat and frank, a bit wooded, it integrates harmoniously, a few months after bottling. A range of very interesting complex aromas contribute to the originality of Picpoul de Pinet vinified in new oak barrels. The acidic peak usually found in the Picpoul wines is quite lessened here.

    This wine accompanies sea food, fish in sauces and certain cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    One of their specialties, and it is consistently good, is the 2011 Picpoul de Pinet, often referred to as the Muscadet of southern France. This is a wine made from 100% Picpoul, which is known in other parts of Europe as Folle Blanche. Notes of Japanese green tea, lemongrass and grapefruit are characteristics of this crisp, dry, very satisfying wine, which is the quintessential dry white to quaff uncritically, although it is better than that description may suggest. It needs to be consumed in its exuberant, fresh, crisp youthfulness, so drink it over the next 12 months while waiting for the 2012s to be released.
