  • Domaine Felines Jourdan Picpoul de Pinet 2011

  • Last night was a fried fish dinner; drank a 2014 Grangette Picpoul de Pinet, which was pretty great for the $9 I paid for it.  Get out of Burgundy, Bordeaux and a few other places and there's still some values in France.  Tonight we'll spatchcock a chicken and grill it, so we'll probably drink a spicy red.  Maybe a CdP, since I hope to winnow th...
