Tasting Notes

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.

Storage Instructions

To enjoy this wine at its best, drink within 1 year of purchase.

Expert Opinion

In the press...

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."

Of the 2012 vintage, Jamie Goode said: “Crisp like a cool ocean wave, and the perfect sip with shellfish. This French white is awesome.”

Of the 2012 vintage, Olly Smith said: “Picpoul de Pinet is the classic crisp white from the south of France. Typically paired with fish and shellfish, it’s usually reliable in quality. This excellent bottle has fresh apple and pear fruit with a satisfying texture too.”

Olly Smith - Event Magazine, Mail on Sunday 30/03/2014

Of the 2012 vintage, Victoria Moore said: "It's made near Thau oyster basin in the south of France where thousands of oysters are harvested each year but this saline, refreshing white is also lovely with salmon."

Victoria Moore - Olive 01/04/2014

Of the 2012 vintage, Tim Atkin said: "One of the best wines in the Finest* range, this is everything that a Picpoul should be: crisp, perfumed and tangy, with pear, apple and stone fruit flavours. And it tastes even better alongside a plate of seafood."
