Domaine Sainte-Anne Picpoul de Pinet 2014
was virtually unknown in the UK for years because the Picpoul grape had been grown around the sleepy village of Pinet in southern France for centuries but wasn’t until 2007, when out of nowhere, it became one of the most fashionable whites in wine bars around the world. Domaine Sainte-Anne Picpoul de Pinet 2014 is surprisingly bright and fresh for a wine produced in such a warm climate, Picpoul shows plenty of citrus fruit and as such it is a great food wine and is a particularly good pairing with seafood.
Domaine Sainte-Anne Picpoul de Pinet 2014 is a wonderful wine to have as an aperitif with cold seafood salads, California rolls or soft, runny cheeses and can be enjoyed with lighter dishes as well.” Here’s how Sally Easton (Master of Wine, Winewisdom.com) says it: “Picpoul de Pinet is one of those French wine appellations, and grape varieties, once discovered, long-loved. For a grape variety grown in the warm, sunny Mediterranean, inland from Sete, it has remarkable freshness and citrus-vivacity.”
