Picpoul is one of the oldest Languedoc grapes and has been grown near the coast in the area around the Bassin de Thau saltwater lagoon for centuries. Picpoul de Pinet is often referred to as ‘the Muscadet of the Languedoc’ thanks to its racy acidity and lemony zing.
Vignobles Canet Picpoul de Pinet is made at the respected 19th century Château Canet in nearby Minervois. Crafted carefully by Château owner and wine maker Floris Lemstra and oenologist Nathalie Leclercq
“Tired of drinking the same dry white wine this summer? Discover the zingy freshness and fantastic value of Picpoul de Pinet” Decanter
Thanks to the cool coastal vineyards, the wine has a crisp fresh acidity and the absence of oak makes it a great match for seafood
Tasting note:With a pale, straw yellow colour and a crisp, citrus and green apple palate, this wine has a mouthwatering freshness and an elegant, mineral finish. Ample lemony fruit and stoney mineral presence, as well as soft and charming acidity, perfect as an aperitif.
