The new 2014 vintage of Picpoul de Pinet from Château Petit Roubié is now in stores!

Petit Roubie 2014This is one of the very first 2014 wines, after Beaujolais Nouveau and couple of Provence rosés, already available. The wine exhibits aromas and flavors of white flowers, ripe citrus and sweet apple, and all the freshness, perfect balance and pure, long finish expected from this best-selling and favorite organic wine!

Château Petit Roubié is family-owned by Floriane and Olivier Azan since 1981 and organically farmed since 1985. The winery is located in the small town of Pinet (population 1,300), which would have been totally unknown to the wine world if it wasn’t for the great white wine produced there from the Picpoul grape.

Olivier Azan is a firm believer in organic farming; his Picpoul vineyards have been free of chemicals and synthetic fertilizers for over 26 years. These happy vines are planted on a high plateau overlooking the Mediterranean; happy vines = good wine.

The Picpoul de Pinet from Château Petit Roubié is a pure, honest, well-crafted and exciting wine that gives great pleasure when consumed as aperitif and will enhance any seafood dish, particularly raw oysters. In fact, this area is also famous for some of France’s best oysters.

This great wine is an incredible bargain offered at $10.99.
