2016 Julie Benau Picpoul Pinet
The Benau family bought this property, a 16th century fortified farmhouse in the south of France in 1980, and, for the next twenty years or so, they sold all their grape production to the local co-op. In 1999, when their young daughter Julie returned home, they began bottling some of the wine on their own and at her insistence they are aiming for only the highest quality.
Their Picpoul is an outstanding example of the grape variety: it has all the fresh green flavor associated with the grape but with a full broad texture and mouthfeel and great minerality. Delightfully light and bright, this lip smacking white grape believed to be indigenous to the Languedoc. It is Southern France’s answer to muscadet PIcpoul also accounts for most of the regions vermouth production and has fallen into an unfortunate state of bulk production.
