An exciting and unusual white wine made in southwest France from the Picpoul grape.
The old vines selection produces a much rounder wine than its younger counterpart which give lemony aromas, raw honey flavors on the palate, and even a nice little kick of mineral on the finish. Ideal with any seafood.
|Appellation||Picpoul de Pinet|
|Producer||Domaine Gaujal de Saint Bon|
|Keeping||Drink within 5 years of bottling.|
Fermented with natural yeasts that bring out the true character of the grapes themselves without artificially accentuating specific traits. Fermented in the tank, but held on the lees 7 to 8 months before bottling, twice as long as other Picpouls.
In close reach to the Mediterranean sea, Domaine Gaujal St Bon is a small operation run with extreme care by the mother-daughter team of Simone and Virginie Gaujal.
They are proud upholders of the Picpoul tradition (the name derived from the French 'Picque', meaning sharp, and 'poul', meaning lip, translating as 'lip stinger'), and strive to make the truest and most expressive variety in the Languedoc region.
