A clean, bright appearance, with the lightest hint of green. The nose is intense, with notes of white blossom, citrus fruit (kiwi) and fresh mint. On the palate it is generous, mouth-filling and well-balanced, with a mineral finish. Elegant and easy-drinking in its youth, this wine will age well, developing notes of spice and a certain iodine/saline character. A Picpoul de Pinet that could grace a dining table or be enjoyed as an aperitif, with seafood or cheese.
