Picpoul

Picpoul, or Piquepoul, is a variety of white wine grape that is grown in France, mostly in the Languedoc region or in the Rhone Valley. This grape variety has several types—Piquepoul noir, the dark-skinnned variety and the light skinned type, Piquepoul blanc. Another type, Piquepoul gris, also exists, although it is not widely planted. Piquepoul blanc is the most planted type of the grape variety and it is grown more in France. This variety buds late in the year and has been a popular grape variety in the region. Picpoul wine was first thought to be poison, but after a well-known visitor drank a glass and labeled it safe, the myth was debunked. It was believed that the variety was initially mixed with Clairette. The grapes are high in acidity. Picpoul grapes tend to produce a low yield and are sensitive to diseases, such as oidium. In France, Piquepoul blanc is typically blended or is created into varietal wines. Both the blanc and noir types of the variety are used for Chateanuneuf-du-Pape. The grape variety creates wines that are known for their signature mineral taste, fresh citrus flavor, and high acidity. Picpoul wine pairs well with seafood dishes such as oysters, grilled fish, shrimp or crustaceans.
