Appearance: This wine presents a bright, clear yellow hue, suggesting a lively and fresh character.

Aroma: The bouquet offers a delightful array of aromas, from the zesty tang of lemon and lime to the subtler notes of green apple and white flowers. A hint of sea spray adds a unique briny character, typical of wines from the coastal Languedoc region.

Palate: On tasting, the wine reveals a vibrant and refreshing acidity, typical of the Picpoul grape. Flavors of citrus fruits, particularly grapefruit and lime, dominate, complemented by a slight minerality and a hint of green herbs. The wine’s texture is crisp, making it both invigorating and easy to drink.

Food Pairings:

  1. Oysters, Natural or Chef's Choice du Jour: The wine’s crisp acidity and citrus notes will enhance the natural brininess of the oysters, while its clean and refreshing palate makes it an ideal accompaniment to seafood.

  2. Shrimp and Scallop Tortellini with Napoli Butter Sugo, Sage, Baby Swiss Chard, and Chilli Shallot Oil: The bright and zesty character of the wine will complement the delicate flavors of the shrimp and scallop, while its acidity will cut through the richness of the butter sugo.
