Grape varietal native to the Languedoc area of France with a history dating back to the 17th century. Along with Clairette, it was the basis of Picardan, a hugely popular wine that was exported from Languedoc to Northern Europe. Following the invasion of phylloxera, plantings of the Picapoll varietal dwindled. At the end of the 19th century growers planted hardier, more disease resistent varietals.
