Picpoul is a legendary grape variety of the area around the coastal town of Sète in the Languedoc. Here it is often teamed with oysters and other seafood dishes such as the amazing local version of the pie called Tielle de Poulpe Sètoise which is braised octopus served in a bread-dough pastry shaped almost like an Australian pie.

The Picpoul grapes were picked by hand from a 1 hectare plot near Pinet (limestone and clay terroir) and placed in small 10 kg baskets. The grapes were then direct pressed and the juice transferred to tanks for a period of 6 months. The wine was then bottled without filtration and without the addition of sulphites to ensure freshness.

This Picpoul is a lively, fresh and slightly acidic (in a good way) white wine that can be enjoyed year round.

We also should explain something about the name. The grape variety, as mentioned above is Picpoul (English) and Piquepoul (French). Philippe therefore pictured a poule (hen), picking at the wine! However, he was contacted by a local to say he had the rights to the name. Therefore, Poupoule became the name on the label. - Living Wines
