Peter’s comments: a fabulous, succulent white that just goes beautifully with both the mouth-coating texture and gentle, earthy, tangy flavours of the dish. Currently on offer so well worth snapping up. It went down a storm in studio, even the production teamed couldn’t help tucking in. ‘Delicious,’ said Ben; Greg co-opted the bottle.
Peter’s comments: lovely heart-warming dish but with a rustic edge. Picpoul works brilliantly. Especially this one, which has a little more oomph and glazed concentration than many a lighter style. Still great value though. Did you know the name ‘picpoul’ meant ‘lip-stinger’..? ‘Perfect match’ said Tim; ‘fantastic match’ said Ben. Job done!
