Pale yellow robe with green hints. A delicate nose of exotic white blossom and citrus. On the palate it is generous and mouth-filling. A lively finish of citrus notes, grapefruit and a slight, pleasant bitterness. An elegant, well-balanced wine which can age well, with a hint of dill and a certain salinity coming through. This Picpoul de Pinet could grace a dining table or be enjoyed as an aperitif, with seafood and cheese (preferably made from goats' or ewes' milk).
