"The 2016 Picpoul de Pinet Hugues Beaulieu is about as quaffable and easy drinking as they come, showing lots of citrus and melon fruit, a hint of mint, medium body and a juicy, clean finish. It delivers exactly what you want from a Picpoul de Pinet."

"THE ONLY WINE YOU SHOULD BE DRINKING WITH SEAFOOD IS PICPOUL DE PINET. One of the best white summer quaffers in the world of wine costs $10 and is probably sitting lonely on the bottom shelf in the French section of your local wine shop, tall, slender and green, filled with thirst-quenching awesomeness waiting to be snatched up and guzzled down. That wine is Picpoul de Pinet and it’s time to get acquainted with this playful Mediterranean." ~Vinepair

"Known as "the Muscadet of the South" in France, this is to the Mediterranean coast of France what Albariño is to northwest Spain...the default wine for fresh shellfish & seafood." ~ Winery Notes

View all from Hugues Beaulieu
Hugues BeaulieuFounded in 1932, this Cave Coopérative is located in the top commune of Pomérols, located between the garrigue of Pezenas and the sea dominated by the Mont St Clair in Sete, Coteaux de Languedoc. The Caves de Pomérols cooperative, reiterates this wine's status as one of the GREAT VALUES of the World. Made from white picpoul grapes -- also known as folle blanche -- and seeing only stainless steel in its production. The soil in this seaside area of Languedoc, just west of the great lagoon of the Bassin de Thau, where the French coast starts its long curve downward toward Spain, is composed of clay and pebbles and fragments of limestone and fossil shells over marl, a perfect mixture for the grape's dry delicacy, lightness and stony, sun-drenched nature.
