Picpoul de Pinet Chateau de la Mirande, France
The name Pique-poul translates literally as stings the lip and is a reference to this grape mouthwateringly high acidity this wine provides.
Picpoul is unusual for French regions as well as it is both the name of the grape and the name of the area. This chateau is among a small group of Picpoul producers who are traditionalists and stand above others in terms of quality.
The wine is crisp, clean, mineral and simply perfect with seafood. Delicate aromas of exotic fruit and peach on the nose, a very well-balanced wine showing the great minerality that this grape and the local terroir offer. We have been on the hunt for a Picpoul after a number of requests from our customers and the Mirande more than ticks all the boxes.
