Sophisticated yet tame French white, good QPR too. Beautifully integrated and balanced ripe fruit, slightly bitter herbs, acid, and minerals. Attacks with crisp mild acid and smooth ripe sour fruit (white grapefruit, sour apple, and a bit of lemon) followed by a pleasant patina of slick bitter herbs and mineral. Glycerin finish of the herbs and mineral with hint of fruit. Acid could cut gently through most breakfast fare. Would pair well with lighter spiced and herbed dishes e.g. white vinegar, dill, green onion, etc.

I must say this wine has some kind of magic. The wine is not flashy but very tame and consistently attractive, a bit like milk on cereal (only here, Picpoul with herb pasta, chicken, and veggies, or maybe just bacon and eggs.). It lasts vacu-corked in the fridge easily four days, and gets better. The "bitter herb" finish is lovely and well-integrated as is the whole wine, and the acid in the wine is tame so it is easy to drink on a consistent basis. Picpoul, I'm told, means lip-stinger in French, likely a pointer to the high acidity of the grape, which therefore does well in hot climates by preserving acidity and therefore can be allowed to go through malolactic (secondary) fermentation to get to smooth agreeable acids. And the price is right and the bottle attractive. This is a great wine for the sophisticated breakfast or lunchtime wine person. also http://www.snooth.com/talk/topic/looking-for-a-good-cheese-pairing-for-picpoul/
