Superb Summer White: 2021 La Chapelle du Bastion Picpoul de Pinet

Superb Summer White: 2021 La Chapelle du Bastion Picpoul de Pinet

Talk about the perfect white wine to beat the heat! The 2021 La Chapelle du Bastion Picpoul is so refreshing, so satisfying, and it will appeal to a broad array of palates and preferences. 

I've been drinking Picpoul for over 20 years now, and the grape usually yields clean and crisp whites perfect for washing down oysters and mussels. This one is ideal for that, but it's got more concentration and richness than most of its peers, and you can't beat the price.

If you've ever wondered what your wine mongers drink at home, this is it! All of us that work at the store love this wine, and we recommend it with reckless abandon. From the village of Pinet, within a stone’s throw of the Mediterranean, this is our idea of the ideal summer white.

It’s got a ton of flavor too, and those flavors run the gamut from green apple and lemony citrus to yellow peach and melon. Often comparted to Muscadet, the famously dry white wine of the Loire Valley, this has got that dry, clean, fresh, and mineralic style, but the sunny Mediterranean climate gives this wine a riper and more flamboyant style.

Stock up on this one for happy cocktail sipping or do the wine serious justice and enjoy with your favorite fish or seafood dishes. It’s a wonderful all-purpose white that will hit the spot for even the most discerning wine lover.
