L'école des vins
Though native to the Rhone Valley, this white grape variety is very little used nowadays. It has distinctive downy buds and fairly large leaves. Shaped like a truncated cone, the grape clusters are tight-packed. The individual berries are smaller than those of the Cinsault vine and become pinkish in colour as they reach maturity.
Picardin grapes are sweet in flavour, with a slightly musky aroma..
Picardin is one of the varieties in Châteauneuf du Pape.
