Picpoul Blanc Grape

Picpoul Blanc is one of the older white wine varietals from the south of France. It is perhaps most popular in the Languedo Roussillon appellation. Picpoul is a shrill, acidic grape that often delivers high yields. In fact, a loose translation of Picpoul means stings the lip. That lip stinging quality refers to the grapes natural, very high acidity level.
