This is not the ‘ubiquitous’ Picpoul de Pinet from the huge Costieres de Pomerols co-operative; this is from Paul Mas a well-respected producer.
Tasting notes: Initial nose of green apples and citrus. Fresh & refreshing. Green apples, white flowers and citrus notes. Balanced acidity; Picpoul works best with food. Short finish, little intensity, little complexity, but good summer drinking.
