Picpoul de Pinet: Domaine Gaujal de St Bon Cuvee Dames Old Vines 2015


From


per bottle

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.

Domaine Gaujal

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.
