Picpoul de Pinet – Tesco Finest

blog 79

In the Loire valley is known as Gros Plant, in Spain (esp Catalonia) as Picapoll. This is good summer drinking. This is the new label for Tesco’s offering; is it better than Waitrose? Well yes… and no. No because it’s the identical wine from the same co-operative producer, but with a different label. And yes – because it’s £1 cheaper and at the moment is 20% off making it £5.60 a bottle – very good at that price – stock up.

Tasting notes: Fresh & refreshing, very good summer drinking. Green apples and lemon and lime notes.
