2016 Julie Benau Picpoul de Pinet "Chichoi a La Baraquette" White, 750ml

Availability: In stock (10)

An nutty, citrus and honey-toned dry white from the far France's southern Mediterranean coast. 100% Picpoul, a grape know for its lively acidity and lemony notes, but in this case shows some of the characteristic of much more aged wine. That because it was vinified and bottled without any additions of sulfites, without which a wine tends to oxidize sooner, giving this wine interesting notes of nuts and baked apples. Organic farming, no added SO2 and fermentation with native yeasts.

From the mouth of the importer (Wine Mc² Selection):

"For almost 20 years they sold their viticultural production to the local Co-op. In 1999, when their young daughter Julie returned to the do- maine, they bottled part of their production for the first time. At Julie’s insistence, the Benau’s have set their sights on putting only the highest quality wines in bottle. In 2001, they bottled a mere, 2,000 cases at the domaine (2 cuvées of Picpoul de Pinet, a VDP Red and a Rosé)."
