Picpoul is a grape variety found in small plantings in southern France. The amin appellation where this grape is featured is Picpoul de Pinet in the Languedoc, but it is also a permitted grape variety in Chateauneuf-du-Pape.
The grape has both a red (Picpoul Noir) and a white (Picpoul Blanc) variety and both are permitted in Chateauneuf-du-Pape which explains why some commentators say that there are thirteen permitted varieties and others say that there are fifteen. The reason is that both Picpoul and Grenache are permitted in their red and white grape varieties.
