Belle Côte 2018

Vin de France

An exciting new release mostly from vineyards next door to ultra trendy Picpoul de Pinet, close to the Med. Using the native varieties of southern France, plus a portion from Gaillac for zippy freshness, it has creamy ripeness with lemony bite.

Buyer Mark Hoddy wanted to create a fresh, characterful white that would showcase the exciting native varieties of southern France. The ones that most of us have never heard of – Loin de l’Oeil and Terret – plus better known Roussanne, Marsanne, Viognier and so on. Grapes with abundant personality. He worked with highly respected winemakers Serge Dubois and Francis Terral, using largely grapes from a vineyard close to trendy Picpoul de Pinet (the wine that’s sprung onto every wine bar and restaurant list), plus a small portion from Gaillac in the southwest. It’s a beautifully balanced white with the creamy white peach fruit you expect from Picpoul, along with the bright citrusy zip of Gaillac. A refreshing glass solo or with lighter dishes.
