Country: France

Picardan is a white grape variety that is one of the 13 (or more accurately 15) grape varieties allowed in the Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation. It is thought to be a native grape of the Languedoc region.
It is a relatively neutral grape variety and is used by only a few producers these days. This grape variety should not be confused with a drink called Picardan that was exported to Holland from France in the 18th century as a sweet wine made from Picpoul Blanc and Clairette.
