Wine Advocate Review Rated 87 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. (Robert Parker)
Wine Tasting Notes Pale yellow color with green tints. Fresh and fine aromas of grapefruit and exotic fruit. Lime flavors, with typical focusing acidity, are hallmarks of Picpoul. Wineries best value, this wine impresses novices and hardened geeks equally. Known as "the Muscadet of the South" in France, this is to the Mediterranean coast of France what Albarino is to northwest Spain the default wine for fresh shellfish & seafood.
