A bright, gleaming wine with green glints. The nose is subtle with a more marked salinity than in 2017. Aromas of white flowers and aniseed are underscored with briny nots in this vintage. Well balanced, harmonious and delectable in the mouth, with pear and green apple mingling with spicy notes and herbs such as dill and fennel, finishing on persistent citrusy and saline notes
A splendid new Picpoul de Pinet, excellent at table or as an aperitif, as an accompaniment to all types of seafood and cheeses.
We confirm once again that this grape variety evolves superbly over time and gains in complexity after one or two years in bottle. And we have to admit, that is when we personally prefer it.
