Wine of the Week 

Hugues Beaulieu 2000

Picpoul de Pinet, Coteaux de Languedoc


If this doesn't become your favorite porch-swing wine, let us know what you're drinking. Like a top-quality pilsner, it bids you to run a country mile so that -- utterly parched -- you could truly realize its crisp, lemony kick. Expect garden flowers and stone fruit in the nose, and a dry finish that lets you down easily. Drink this one young with pasta in light sauces, raw oysters and other fresh shellfish.
