Jean-Luc Colombo, Picpoul "Les Girelles" Picpoul de Pinet, Languedoc, France 2020
100% Picpoul / Picquepoul Blanc
Jean-Luc Colombo has forged an international reputation as one of the most visionary and imaginative winemakers in France's Rhône Valley and especially in Cornas.
"Les Girelles" (The Rainbow Wrasses) are emblematic fishes from the Mediterranean: colorful, slender, elegant, and acrobatic swimmers. The vineyard for this wine is located on a limestone plateau surrounded by pine forests and overlooking the Étang de Thau.
This is a delicate wine with notes of fresh flowers that pairs well with small fried fishes, goat cheese or with seafood platter shared with friends.
