Glimmering with greenish gold highlights. The nose is frank and clear-cut, very floral with touches of aniseed and iodized notes. The first palate is smooth, full and extremely supple, evolving to a supremely fresh finish in a register of citrus fruit. A passage on lees confers texture and length. Always consistently elegant whilst young, this wine has the potential to age gracefully in the bottle for several years. A top-end Picpoul de Pinet for aperitif or for drinking at table, with all types of seafood and cheeses.
