Long-standing fans of what is arguably the Languedoc’s best white wine grape – Piquepoul-de-Pinet – (note the old-fashioned spelling), the Blanchards wine team chose this particular wine with alacrity. Vibrant acidity (‘picpoul’ means ‘lip-stinger’ in Languedoc dialect), citrus fruit inclining to the tropical, and a slight, but perceptible saline minerality, make it a natural match for the riches of the sea (thus: Richemer). The Marseillans where it is made quaff it with huîtres from the oyster beds around the neighboring maritime village of Bouzigues. Immediately appealing, take a break from your favorite Sauvignon Blanc and try it with lighter fare or appetizers.
