Picpoul de Pinet 2017 - Château de la Mirande


Château de la Mirande was created in the 1850s and was bought by Joseph Albajan in 1988. Today, the estate operates 30 hectares of vineyards and is a reference for the Picpoul-de-Pinet appellation - Joseph Albajan is locally known as the "Pope of Picpoul"! This wine is a delicious fresh and crisp white with typical flavours of citrus, apple and a hint of white flowers. A really punchy wine, ideal for aperitif and starters.

89/100 "Apple, pear and lemon, sketched with restraint and grace, from a magnificently sited property and 16 ha of carefully tended vines." (previous vintage)

Jancis Robinson

16/20 "Much tighter than most Picpoul de Pinets. Very tight. Croquant." (previous vintage)
