A pale, gleaming wine. As with all the white wines in 2021, quantities are very small, but the quality is outstanding. The nose is typical of our Picpoul, with subtle aromas of white flowers and aniseed leading to fresh iodized notes. A vivid, supremely aromatic first palate with exotic fruit, pineapple, dill and fennel notes. Clean, mineral and lightly saline on the finish with an agreeably bitter touch of citrus fruit. A Picpoul de Pinet destined for the table, a wonderful foil for seafood and cheese. We reiterate that (contrary to popular belief) this grape variety evolves superbly over time and gains in complexity after one or two years in bottle.
