Picpoul de Pinet is situated in the Languedoc roughly half way between Béziers and Montpellier. Château de la Mirande islocated in the commune of Castelnau-de-Guers not far from the Bassin de Thau, a salt-water lagoon dedicated to the cultivationof oysters and mussels. The vineyard spreads through the Mediterranean garrigue with its thousand scents and is in part situatedon slopes of red earth covered with pebbles which release the sun’s heat to perfect the maturity of the Picpoul. This is adeliciously understated wine, a touch of savoury brininess, a hint of white flowers, and before you know it, the contents of thebottle have disappeared into history. It is a watery wine in the best sense, thirst quenching and utterly appropriate with linguineof crab with chilli, garlic and parsley (which is what I had to eat last night). The terroir for the Mirande vineyard is a claylimestone mix on south-facing terraces with the vines between 30-100 years old. Green harvesting and organic viticulture arepart of the estate’s philosophy.Picpoul (Piquepoul Blanc) itself is an ancient grape variety, which has the sort of green-tinged iodine fruit and crisp acidity onewould associate with Muscadet or Gros Plant, but with more vinosity. This version has a spicy aniseed bouquet, green fruits andherbs, is quite resinous with an ample mouthfeel and savoury flavours of iodine, yellow plum and pepper, also a sharp prickle. Itis traditionally consumed with the local oysters (huitres de Bouzygues) from the Bassin de Thau. A wake up call to the jadedpalate.
