2009 HB Picpoul de Pinet 

Coteaux du Languedoc, France

$9-$10 Retail

A fantastic value, this engaging wine is refreshing, ready and right for summer soirees or casual dining. Made from native white Picpoul grapes grown on hillsides overlooking the Mediterranean, this medium-bodied wine offers gutsy aromas of grapefruit, honeysuckle and pear with lime zest and tropical nuances. On the palate, a tart acidity mingles with crisp green apple, lemon, a hint of white peach and a pleasant minerality on the finish. Drink it now. Serve well chilled to spark the delicious, bracing acidity; enjoy as an apertif or with oysters, seafood and other shellfish. The wine pairs especially well with goat cheese and fresh beet salad. Where to buy it: Bacchanal, some Rouses locations and Acquistapace's Covington Supermarket. Where to drink it: Emeril's, Bouche Wine Bar and Bistro, Lilette, Catch, Delachaise, Stein's Market and Deli and La Provence. (Listings current at press time.) — Brenda Maitland
