For a zingy white, this is just unbeatable. Lemon sorbet, lightly floral – think acacia blossom and wallflowers at their most scented at the end of a hot day, with a lick of refreshing flintiness, wet stone and pineapple too, and pithy, impressively long finish. Picpoul is the perfect response to sunny weather – and our Laurence de Veyrac Picpoul is a classic of the genre, the ‘Chablis of the Med’. Drink cool. So good to drink with oysters, butterflied mackerel thrown on the bbq and lots of lemon.
