A brilliant, gleaming wine that is true to our style of Picpoul. Elderflower, aniseed and a certain brininess can be detected with an agreeable final touch of bitterness. The palate is fresh, developing green apple, pineapple, dill and fennel with a superbly vertical, mineral and saline finish. An accomplished Picpoul de Pinet that is excellent at table or as an aperitif, and as an accompaniment to all types of seafood and cheeses. We reiterate (contrary to popular opinion) that this grape variety evolves superbly over time and gains in complexity after one or two years in bottle.
