Hughes Beaulieu Coteaux du Languedoc Picpoul-de-Pinet

Hughes Beaulieu Coteaux du Languedoc Picpoul-de-Pinetis a delicious South West France white that is delightful.   Total Wine sells it for about $10 a bottle, and it's wonderful with cheese, hummus, sea food, chicken...  we're been drinking alot of white wine in the warmer weather outside as we soak up UV and produce vitamin D. 

It's got crisp apple and pear flavors, perhaps a hint of apricot, but not nasty grapefruit - get a New Zealand wine for the spike of grape fruit.  Acidic without over-whelming the mouth..   Dr Desert Flower and I both really enjoy it. 

Other reviews really gush about how awesome this wine is (sick how much I love this wine), and here and hereIt's great. 

If you like Chardonnay, you'll probably not like this.   If you like complex whites, semillion, or sauvignon blanc, try this one.   I'll be surprised if you don't like it.
