Chateau Maris Picpoul de Pinet

 
Chateau Maris Picpoul de Pinet

Picpoul, or Piquepoul, means 'lip-stinger' on account of its natural acidity.If you like Sauvignon Blanc then we think you'll also enjoy this.  Made using grapes grown high up in the Languedoc hills, this wine is both intensely fruity and refreshingly crisp.This wine has lovely floral laced aromas of pears which carry through to the palate. A streak of minerality and spice on the palate and it is all wrapped up a decent amount of acidity making this a well balanced wine. Would pair excellently with Oysters and oily fish eg Mackerel, Anchovies, Sardines.

The white only cru of the Languedoc.It’sone of those rare things in France:a varietal-labeled wine.It’s sometimes called the ‘Muscadet of the Languedoc’, though the flavor profile is fuller, is imilarly zesty and it’s a fantastic alternative to Sauvignon Blanc or Albarino.MarisPicpoul tastes best in theprime of its youth, when it is showingits full flavors to their  best: white flower blossom, lemon freshness, soft green apple
 
For a grape variety grown in the warm,sunny Mediterranean, inland from Sète, ithas remarkable freshness and citrus-vivacity. Indeed, anyone in doubt of this grape’s freshness should look to its
Occit an origins for a translation ... lip stinger... so-
called for the grape’s high natural acid content, which it retains well in the Mediterranean warmth.
This maybe partly due to the sea breezes
(The town of Pinet is a stone’s throw away from the sea) cooling the extreme warmth of the day, and bringing much needed moisture to the vines on their panoramic limestone plateau. Made under anaerobic conditions in stainless steel, Maris Picpoul by the Pool has light coloring with
hints of green. It boasts a floral nose, distinctive with echoes of gunflint, brine and fennel.The wine has crisp but balanced acidity, mineral notes and a surprisingly broad texture. The wine is an  unbeatable match for shellfish, marinated anchovies,grilled fish and, when in season, asparagus.
