Gaujal St Bon Picpoul de Pinet Cuvee Dames


Picpoul de Pinet is a relatively small sub-appellation within the Languedoc. The vineyards are located in close proximity to the Mediterranean Sea, not far from the beach resort of Sète, which is southwest of Montpellier. Like some other Mediterranean whites, Rolle (aka Vermentino) and Assyrtico, Piquepoul thrives in the hot climate and holds its acidity and freshness well. Domaine Gaujal de Saint Bon is a small estate-bottled operation run with extreme diligence by the mother-daughter team, Simonne and Virginie Gaujal. They are proud defenders of Picpoul de Pinet, and endeavor to make the finest examples of the variety in the appellation.
