Château de Pinet
Picpoul de Pinet Cuvée des Comtesses

Passed from father to son for 250 years, the estate is now managed by Simone ARNAUD GAUJAL and daughter Anne-Virginie, seeking the alliance of know-how and modernity. Most of their wines are characterized by low yields making it possible to obtain better concentration and an aromatic richness taking the time to develop. HVE3 certified

Cuvée des Comtesses is made from the younger vines, giving a classic Picpoul, fresh, vibrant but also deliciously aromatic.

Grape

100% Piquepoul

Tasting Note

Crystal clear with green highlights. Soft, delicate nose, with pleasant hints of acacia and hawthorn blossom.

Delicate and fresh in the mouth it has an excellent acid/structure balance. It is a fresh, dry white wine with subtle lemony overtones and elegance.

Wine Advocate

“Talk about sensational value! The Gaujals know how to get the most out of the Picpoul and its little seaside appellation. They limit their yields, and bottle their wine only after 7-8 months sur lie, twice as long as most others in this coop-dominated region.They render from their appellation a wine that not only fulfills its duty to be irresistibly thirst-quenching, but has a serious side as well” – Robert Parker

Food Pairing

Great as aperitif, this wine is not only splendid with seafood and shellfish as well as other traditional Mediterranean dishes, but also with cheese and chocolate.
