An amazingly refreshing, apple laden version of the classic Picpoul from the wonderful Grange des Rocs winery in the Languedoc. Clean, crisp unoaked and nicely dry, this is the pefect partner for anything shellfish.
Notes on the producer
Situated on the shores of the Bassin de Thau - a saltwater lagoon devoted to the cultivation of shellfish - Grange des Rocs is run by Etienne Lalande. The tiny appellation of Picpoul de Pinet itself is to be found to the south of Pezenas and the area produces thirst-quenching whites bursting with lip-smacking acidity ('Picpoul' translates into 'lip-stinger)
