From the south of France near Sète, just down the motorway from Montpellier, Picpoul de Pinet is a refreshing, crisp, dry white wine.

 

Very pale straw in the glass, the floral aromatics on the nose lead to a crisp dry palate with fruit nicely balanced by acidity and fresh, citrus zest. There is almost a salty tang to the finish. A perfect seafood wine – the Muscadet of the south if you like.

 

Domaine Delsol has 5 hectares of vineyards next to the Etang de Thau producing definitive Picpoul.

 

The front label of the bottle and the gates to the domaine depict a pair of armoured war elephants that commemorate the passage of Hannibal, through what was to become the vineyards of Domaine Delsol, in 218 BC on his way from Carthage to sack Rome.

 

Bottled in the traditional “Neptune” bottle.
