Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
The literal translation of the name Picoul is 'lip-stinger' on account of its refreshing nature, and this is certainly refreshing for all the right reasons.
A bright star from Southern France, with wonderful pear and apple fruit.
Heavenly match for seafood, especially shellfish.
To enjoy this wine at its best, drink within 1 year of purchase.

Of the 2012 vintage, Matthew Jukes said: "Tangy and lip-smacking, this bright, uplifting white wine is a benchmark summer candidate with crisp acidity and vital Braeburn and gooseberry notes. I’m a huge fan of this part of the world because the wines are delicious and affordable too.”

Of the 2012 vintage, Olly Smith said: "Exuberant, light and lemony. Awesome with oysters or as a pristine aperitif. One of my big refreshers of this summer."

Of the 2012 vintage, Fiona Beckett said: "Fresh, crisp finest* Picpoul de Pinet, which comes from the Languedoc coast. Picpoul is a restaurant winelist favourite, especially with shellfish."
