2018 Picpoul de Pinet, Cuvée Ludovic Gaujal, Domaine Gaujal, Languedoc, France
£12.25 £11.25 per bottle
Picpoul is usually an inexpensive style of holiday wine, glugged on the Riviera by legions of sun seekers. It has recently become a favourite on the High Street, but these versions are invariably diluted, lacking in character, with little traction on the palate. Usually residing in a slender flute-shaped bottle, Gaujal looks more serious in its Bordeaux shaped glass and this attitude continues on the palate. Firm, commanding, and bone dry and with a hint of citrus, this is a wicked white wine for seafood and crustacea and I am shocked by its impressive bravado.
