Ch St Martin de la Garrigue Picpoul de Pinet 2016 Ch St Martin de la Garrigue Picpoul de Pinet 2016

If you've only ever had mass-produced Picpoul de Pinet from a co-op winery - or if you are just craving something deliciously different in white wine refreshment - you owe it to yourself to try this stunner.  As Andrew Jefford, British author of the landmark The New France has said, “Perhaps the best wine for me is an astonishing Picpoul de Pinet, picked very late from low-yielding vines: those who consider this an inarticulate if refreshing choice, the Muscadet of the Midi, should try this mint-and-verbena-scented, powerfully lemony wine.”

In 2016, this has all the concentration of the 2015 plus a remarkable leve of precision and detail. Bold aromas of sweet herb (mint, verbena), ripe citrus, honeydew melon and wet stone roll from the glass.  On the palate there's plenty of weight and texture to the fresh green apple, pineapple and sea breeze flavors that lead into a long, layered, and detailed finish.  Grown at half the yields of most Picpoul, it's a fine match for any seafood or summer day.
