Picpoul is a white grape that grows to perfection around the village of Pinet in the coastal reaches of the Languedoc. Most unusually for France, it has its very own appellation, Picpoul de Pinet, which stretches from Pézenas to the fishing port of Sète. The name is said to refer to the habit of the local chickens - "poulets" in French - "pic-ing" or pecking the grapes that the sea breezes have blown off the vines.

You can be forgiven for thinking that such a crisp wine could only come from a cool climate, but the fact that Picpoul ripens so late in the season means that it retains its acidity even in the Mediterranean heat.
