2013 Picpoul de Pinet

Over the last few years this is the third Picpoul de Pinet that I have tried.  They are always inexpensive, light and pleasant.  This particular incarnation is the 2013 vintage from Les Costieres de Pomerols and it is much like the others, inexpensive and pleasant.

The wine is very herbal with some lemon scents and flavors.  It was tart and crisp on the front of the tongue before turning fruity by the time it reached the back of the tongue.  For a medium bodied wine it had a surprisingly long finish to it.  Very easy to drink and doesn't require any thought - just a thirst.

It washed down some oven poached flounder filets with tarragon and a few shrimp.  The match was good.

2013 Costieres de Pomerols Picpoul de Pinet.  12.5% alcohol and $10.
