Domaine Delsol Picpoul de Pinet

We like the grape Picpoul and our customers like the grape Picpoul!
We have found another one that we think you will enjoy!

2018 Domaine Delsol Picpoul de Pinet...$14.99
100% Picpoul (one of the oldest indigenous Languedoc varieties)
TASTING NOTE: Domaine Delsol is a dry, light, refreshing wine. The nose is fruity and floral, with hints of rose petal and lime. In the mouth it is lively and fresh with well balanced acidity. 
FOOD PAIRING: Ideal with shellfish, grilled fish and fresh cheeses.

More info about the estate...
Domaine Delsol is ideally situated along the Thau Lagoon in Montagnac in the newly formed Picpoul de Pinet AOC. The lagoon and Mediterranean breezes make the nights cooler than in other areas of the Languedoc. This and the high humidity create perfect conditions for growing Picpoul de Pinet. Domaine Delsol consistently produces a fresh, aromatic white wine with buoyant, ripe fruit and mouthwatering acidity. Apparently Hannibal and his elephants passed through what was to become the Domaine on their way to Rome, so elephants have become a kind of mascot for Delsol.
