  • Yesterday I enjoyed a nice massage, followed by an excellent lunch at Seasons ... (Chardonnay, Viognier and Picpoul de Pinet), but then I had the full glass of a red wine (Cabernet Sauvignon from Mendoza) to finish the meal.  As for food, I had the Artichoke / Goat Cheese flat bread and a lobster tail, followed by the Pecan Pie desert cup.  I ...

  • 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

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

    Snoothrank:

    Purchased this as a recommendation from wine merchant, and found it a delightful alternative to the usual summer quaffers. As it is produced in a warmer climate, it is well suited to summer. As an aperitif, paired very well with a spicy garden salsa, with the sweeter notes upfront helping to calm the heat. Paired decently with grilled chicken ma... Read More
