Chateau Font-Mars

2013 Picpoul de Pinet

Languedoc France


Picpoul, meaning "lip stinger," is one of Chateauneuf-du-Pape's allowable 13 grapes.  Grown just meters from the oyster beds of the Bassin de Tau on the Mediterranean, its is known as the "Muscadet of the South" because  of the high acidity of its must.  This well-priced and low-alcohol wine is crisp and bright, with subtle floral and mineral notes on the nose that are followed by flavors of grapefruit, fresh lemons and tart pineapple, making it an ideal match with oysters, assorted seafood dishes and grilled seafood.  12.5% ABV FGW
