L’Abeille Picpoul de Pinet 2018, Languedoc
If ever there was a white wine that screamed “roll up your sleeves, we’re on it all afternoon” then picpoul is it. The ultimate white in the shellfish laden bistro’s of the Mediterranean – if we were showing off we would say go get some oysters and shuck and slurp your day away. If we weren’t showing off we’d say just drink it – it goes with a anything and has enough sass to be entertaining on its own. Taste wise it sits merrily at the halfway point between pinot grigio and sauvignon blanc. A few more bells and whistles than the first and mercifully short of the volume-up school band of the second. Taught, fresh, lemony with a whiff of pot grown herbs and balcony flowers.
