Moulin de Gassac Picpoul de Pinet 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

From vineyards very near the oyster beds on the Mediterranean sea, this wine is a classic example of why Picpoul is known as the "Southern Muscadet". Intriguing, briny mineral notes in both the nose and mouth provide the perfect backdrop for fish and shellfish. Some melon and citrus flavors keep you coming back for more and the crisp acidity assures that your palate does not tire from this zesty wine.

Languedoc, FranceMoulin de Gassac Picpoul de Pinet is a delightful white wine gem from the Languedoc wine region of southern France. The influence of limestone soils and Mediterranean Sea breezes is evident in this crisp, refreshing white perfect for spring and summer enjoyment. Mas de Daumas-Gassac practices organic agriculture and makes this wine from five hectares of vines near the oyster beds on the Mediterranean Sea. If you've never tasted a Picpoul de Pinet, you should discover now what you've been missing! Moulin de Gassac Picpoul de Pinet is 100% Picpoul Blanc, unoaked. It's a classic example of why Picpoul is fondly referred to as the "Muscadet of the Midi." Briny mineral notes in both the nose and mouth provide the perfect pairing for fish and shellfish. The palate is dominated by melon and citrus flavors and a crisp, zesty acidity that keeps you coming back for more. The weight and fruit concentration make this a more ample wine than most Picpouls. This is so much wine for the money! Enjoy Moulin de Gassac Picpoul de Pinet over the next 2-3 years on the patio with friends or paired with roast chicken, grilled snapper, steamers, Cobb salad and goat cheese.
