One of the thirteen permitted varietals allowed in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and is becoming more widely planted in California. Usually used in a blend, we couldn't resist having this varietal stand alone. The name Picpoul translates to 'lip stinger' as it is known for its bright, vibrant acidity. Very pale in color with fresh lemon and citrus notes and a crisp finish. This Picpoul is amazing with food and delicious on a warm summer day!
