Coteaux du Languedoc Picpoul-de-pinet Wine

for this region?

This wine is produced in the Coteaux du Languedoc region of southeast France. The terroir is a mixture of limestone, sand and clay. Pinet is a small Languedoc village overlooking the oyster and mussel farms of the Bassin de Thau. Although the climate is dry and sunny, the lake provides coolness and humidity at night which allows the grapes to retain a high level of acidity. It is a wine of compelling minerality and crisp acidity. Best known as an accompaniment to seafood. – Description from pjmesbono

  • Domaine Rocquemoliere Picpoul de Pinet 2014

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this bottle of wine from a shop in London's Kensington [www.nicolas.co.uk] for £10.Picpoul is a grape variety [ which comes in red and white versions although the white is far more common ] grown in Languedoc. It is susceptible to fungus and has low yeilds although it can do well in sandy soils so it is not widely used. Picpoul de Pinet... Read More

  • Cuvee Azan 2013

    Snoothrank:

    12.9% alcohol content seemed really effective. Got me a little stuffy when drinking it, but not enough to avoid it. Crisp citrus. Nice floral nose. Read More

  • Domaine Font Mars Picpoul 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Tight and slightly herbal on the nose with subtle shadings of dried herb stem floating over a base of flinty minerality. This is lean and fresh in the mouth and very acid driven with some crap apple and lime pith fruit and subtle herbal shadings offering a bit of complexity. Gaining a little richness on the backend, and some notes of white peach... Read More

  • Domaine de Cantagrils Picpoul de Pinet 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Dusty and spicy on the nose this shows a fine mineral base with gently drying apple blossoms and crisp apple fruit on the nose. Bright, fresh and acid driven in the mouth, this has a fair amount of weight and richness to it yet remains crisp and focused with slightly creamy apple and tart peach flavors on the palate. The acid drives the long fin... Read More

  • Hugues de Beauvignac Coteaux du Languedoc Picpoul-de-Pinet 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Some apply aromas and some hints of earthiness. Very light and refreshing on the palate. Some stone fruit flavors compete with some minerality. There is certainly nothing to object to, here. Similarly, it is not a terribly exciting wine. A good picnic wine, though. US$8.99 at Total Wines. Read More

  • Costieres de Pomerols Hugues Beaulieu Picpoul de Pinet Petite Frog Box 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Pours a very pale straw color, almost colorless with thick tears. Sweet creamy papaya, hints of pineapple and banana, slight citrusy undertones near the back end. Light-bodied with a striking acidity, grapefruit, tropical fruit, and a little minerality characterize the front and mid-palate. The acidity is very crisp, almost prickly on the front ... Read More
