The appellation of Picpoul de Pinet covers about 3,000 acres just off the coast of the Mediterranean. It is famous for two things, oysters and this wine of origin Picpoul. Picpoul itself is the grape and means "lip stinger," which has become a running joke in our Hollywood store. Whenever we taste a new Picpoul we ask each other if it "pics your poul?" We want to know if it has the vibrancy and minerality that are the hallmarks of the region. That brings us to the Montmassot, which is produced at the local cooperative in the village of Florensac. It is sourced from 40 acres of their best vineyards of predominately clay and limestone. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel tank, spending about 4 months on the lees with no malolactic to preserve their freshness and nerve. Bright and citrusy, with a hint of briny fresh-from-the-sea succulence, this refreshing white is a summertime VIP.
