Winemaker's Notes:

Greenish-yellow in color, this wine offers a discreet but very fine and floral nose. Full flavors, long and rich. There is a mixture of floral aromas mixed with nuances of banana and citrus fruits (citronella and grapefruit) with a peach and apple-vanilla finish. Neat and frank, a bit wooded, it integrates harmoniously, a few months after bottling. A range of very interesting complex aromas contribute to the originality of Picpoul de Pinet vinified in new oak barrels. The acidic peak usually found in the Picpoul wines is quite lessened here.

This wine accompanies sea food, fish in sauces and certain cheeses.

My Notes:
