Wine of the week: La Croix Gratiot Pic Poul 2011

April 30th, 2013

picpoulWelcoming back this lovely Pic Poul as our wine of the week.  With the weather getting warmer, nothing is more refreshing than a light, crisp, low alcohol wine.  Situated between Bassin de Thau and hills of pines, the vineyard of La Croix Gratiot is near the village of Montagnac in the Languedoc.. The vines planted on a loamy-limestone soil profit from the marine trade winds and the scents of the scrubland. The wine is bright yellow with green highlights, intensely zingy with a clean scent of lime and white pepper. At 12.5% alcohol, this is a great wine to enjoy all summer long.
