2014 Zazou, Picpoul

2014 Zazou, Picpoul
Volume: 750 mL, Alcohol: 12.5%
The coolest fact about this wine is that "Picpoul" literally translates to, "sting the lips." The grape got its name because the wine is high in acidity, which means it's refreshing and tart as you sip on it. This bottle makes for a great aperitif but also goes particularly well with salty dishes.

More about this wine from Picpoul de Pinet, France
The French know a thing or two about making wine. They've been doing it for centuries and sometimes they keep their vino knowledge a little too close to the vest, but we've got the low down for you on this v cool indigenous French grape. The coolest fact about this wine is that "Picpoul" literally translates to, "sting the lips," (*enter several Anchorman jokes*).

The grape got its name because the wine is high in acidity, which means it's refreshing and tart as you sip on it while hoping for a short winter. This bottle makes for a great aperitif but also goes particularly well with salty dishes, especially seafood or charcuterie. In France, it is most often served with oysters - so make like the French and get shucking.
