Wine By Grape Variety | Piquepoul
Piquepoul, Picpoul or Picapoll is an ancient white wine grape variety and the grape behind Picpoul de Pinet AOP, one of the named Crus of the Côteaux du Languedoc in southern France. It produces crisp citrusy wines with subtle mineral overtones.
In addition to Picpoul Blanc there are also rare Picpoul Gris and Picpoul Noir variants. The former is now verging on extinction, while the latter remains a minor ingredient in the wines of the Côtes du Rhone and Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellations.
