Clear and shimmering with greenish gleams. A lovely floral nose with always the same hints of aniseed and iodized notes. The first palate is opulent, persistent and very harmonious. This is a vintage where freshness prevails in notes of green apple, citrus and salinity. Elegant, as always, this wine evolves superbly in the bottle giving a Picpoul de Pinet of great poise, superb at table or as an aperitif, to accompany all types of seafood and cheeses.
