Vinification Details

  • Grown around the Bassin de Thau, an ideal location as locals say Picpoul vines need to "have their heads in the wind and their feet in the sea".

History

  • Founded in 1932, the co-operative currently has around 350 members with a quality approach at its centre. The vineyard benefits from a Mediterranean climate tempered by maritime influences, and extends between Garrigue and Etang de Thau, in sunny terraces called Costières, hence the name "Costières de Pomérols"

Regional Information

  • Over the last 25 years, the fortunes of Languedoc-Rousillon have been transformed largely due to the introduction of the Vin de Pays classification in 1979. This exciting region continues to see a flow of investment from the Bordelais and others, which has enabled the evolution of the qualitative pyramid to continue.

Picpoul perfection

5 stars

Absolutely delicious light white wine fresh in flavour and so unlike a lot of the heavy buttery whites from the Languedoc. Great with food but also as a stand alone drink.

No longer Vegan or Vegetarian

1 stars

The Veggie sign has been removed from the bottle and customer support confirm it is no longer suitable

OK to drink

3 stars

I've been lucky enough to have enjoyed some very drinkable Picpoul from a restaurant and a wine club, so I'm probably biased, but to me, whilst this is described as "Finest", it is somewhat acidic and harsh. Of course, it is a pound or two cheaper than I've paid before, but that probably underlines the notion that you get what you pay for. It is drinkable but, for me, disappointing. Yet another example of "bog standard" hiding behind a supermarket label?

Dry and Fruity

5 stars

Delicious, although i only buy when it is on offer!

Superb

5 stars

One of the very few "cheaper" whites that I enjoy. Usually I'm a Sancerre or Chablis drinker when on white but for £7 this is superb and I always stock up when it's on the "buy 6 get 25% off" offer. Perfect with fish or white meat or just on it's own in the garden on a summers evening.

An enjoyable light wine ..

5 stars

My wife enjoys a glass (or two) of this wine after a hard day's slog at the office. 'Nuff said, n'est-ce pas?

Excellent Wine

5 stars

We love Picpoul de Pinet and this Tesco Finest is the best we have tried so far. This is our second 12 bottle box and would recommend to anybody plus the First Class Service from Tesco.

Excellent value for a good summer white wine

4 stars

I always have some of this in the fridge because it is a such a pleasant refresher, which everyone in our family likes. It is not subtle or complicated wine. Very fruity and floral in taste and nose. It is off-dry, but not sweet. (Perhaps the 2015 vintage is a little sweeter than the previous one.)

French Wine

4 stars

A good wine with great flavors, good price from Tesco's purchased by the case. Delivery on time sit back and enjoy this French wine relax.

Lovely wine

5 stars

I first came across Picpoul De Pinet wine in France and initially found it difficult to source back in the UK, until I spotted it in Tesco. The wine is lovely and fresh, without any heavy cloying floral or citrus tones. It's good with any kind of food, but especially with chicken or fish or it can be drunk on it's own as it's fairly light but with lots of flavour. It makes a refreshing change to Sav Blanc and even my red wine only drinking husband has taken a liking to it.
