AUGUST 2014 Insider Pick from Barbara Philip MW, Portfolio Manager for European Wines: "Picpoul is what you drink in the south of France to cool down on a summer day. Minerally, lemony and brisk, it is a natural partner with oysters on the 1/2 shell."
Few wines are as fresh and quenching as this Picpoul de Pinet. It is perfect as an aperitif with or without fresh seafood. This aromatic white from the Languedoc on the Mediterranean coast is a brilliant pale gold colour and bursting with scents of white flowers, passion fruit and citrus peel. Dry, fruity and lively in the mouth, this new varietal is ideal with grilled fish, seafood, rich cheese and charcuterie.
