Looking for a zippy, refreshing white wine that's a bit different? This top French wine is a winning option. The grape's Picpoul, which means 'lip-stinger' in Occitane, thanks to it's super-fresh, crisp nature. They'd have it with oysters or mussels. But it's great as a cold glass by itself, with salads and lighter dishes.

Maybe it's similarities to Sauvignon account for its 'once tried, never forgotten' appeal. We've yet to come across anyone who wasn't both impressed and smitten by this French white.

This could be the wine you'll want in your fridge at all times - whatever the season.

Top 10 Best-Selling White Wine

Tom Cannavan Reviews

Don't just take our word for it; here's what wine writer Tom Cannavan has to say:

"From a tiny coastal appellation in the Languedoc, Picpoul has been a big hit in recent years, appealing to those who love a fresh, vibrant style of fruity wine in the mould of Sauvignon Blanc or dry Riesling perhaps. This is a fine example, with some Kiwi input on the winemaking perhaps adding that extra ounce of zip, the nose crammed with peachy fruit but a little lick of salty minerality adding intrigue. The palate is super-fresh without being at all tart, a creamy mouth-feel and loads of rounded limey acidity giving it immense drinkability."

The Region

The region benefits from a sunny warm climate which encourages ripe, fruity flavours in the wines, while the coastal breezes help retain freshness and aromatics. The grapes come from selected vineyards around the Etang de Thau and Picpoul area and the vines are planted on sandy Pliocene soils with harvesting achieved both by hand and machine.

This delicate, textured dish needs just a twist of citrussy freshness to contrast with the sweet scallop meat. Seafood-friendly whites such as Picpoul de Pinet, Albarino or Vermentino are particularly good matches.
