Tasting Notes: A flinty alternative to Muscadet or Gruner-Veltliner, or Pouilly Fume, Picpoul used to be cheap, and unusual to find outside France until a couple of years ago when it cropped up more frequently, particularly on gastro-pub wine lists. Prices rose as it became more popular until it neared £20 a bottle in places. It’s not that good and as I can still get it for 5Euros in France I won’t pay that. However, when the sun is shining and you have some seafood for lunch…
