Bonny Doon Picpoul
Bonny Doon
United States - California - Monterey

This Picpoul is from the Beeswax vineyard. Picpoul or "lip-stinger" is known, of course for its tingling acidity, but coupled with its singular savoriness, it creates a dramatic sensation on the palate.

The nose of this Picpoul is maritime, coupled with a discreet suggestion of peaches, wildflowers and the ubiquitous fragrance of beeswax. 

Wine Type
100% Picpoul Blanc

This wine is utterly brilliant with the briniest oysters or Dungeness crab. Other ideas include grilled octopus with lemon, Moussaka, sardines a la plancha, grilled sardines with frisée & whole-grain mustard dressing.

vinous logo"Limpid straw-yellow. Mineral- and herb-tinged nectarine and yellow apple scents backed by hints of lemon pith and honey. Juicy and light on its feet offering taut peach pit and pear skin flavors that unfold slowly on the back half. Smoothly blends fleshiness and nerve and shows firm nervy bite on the finish which leaves a tangy refreshingly bitter citrus pith note behind.- Josh Raynolds"
