Picpoul (sometimes spelled “Piquepoul”) is one of the oldest grape varieties in the south of France. It is often blended into regional wines, including Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Picpoul on its own, especially from the Pinet area, gives exceptional results. Here, the vineyards are planted on the shores of the Étang de Thau, a saltwater lagoon that is the largest and deepest of all lagoons in the area. It truly resembles an inland sea, separated from the Mediterranean Sea by just a narrow strip of sand. The coastal breezes moderate the hot climate, and allow the grapes to retain their freshness. Picpoul wines are unassuming, in the best possible way: juicy, lemony, often with a salty touch, like it has in this case. It’s sometimes said that Picpoul de Pinet is southern France’s answer to Muscadet, and both seem to be made for a platter of freshly shucked oysters (the Thau lagoon provides about half of France’s oyster supply!). The wine is also great for casual sipping on the patio. Serve between 8-10 ºC and drink while it’s young, between now and 2023.


The mineral wine is a true delight with a dozen oysters on the half shell, but works equally well with other fresh seafood, such as steamed mussels or simple grilled fish.

Aromas and Flavours


From Granny Smith to Red Delicious, apple makes for a delightfully crisp aroma.


A romantic picnic in the orchard, with your partner and their favourite white wine.


Common in cool climate white wines, this aroma can range from fresh citrus to lemon zest.


As refreshing as aromas come, the smell of grapefruit is purely invigorating.


Remember playing with pebbles as a child and giving them a lick out of curiosity?
