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 palate, and is balanced by a creamy fruitiness on the short finish. Overall this is a clean, simple, easy-drinking wine that would go well with light, sweeter dishes. Except for the beautiful bottle though, this wine isn't very memorable.

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 marinated in olive oil, oregano and cumin, and grilled veggies. Mouth-filling, rounded pear and melon flavors; good acidity; crisp finish. Good value; will buy more.

From the Cocirc;teaux du Languedoc comes this intriguingly dry, single-varietal white made from the Picpoul grape. Delightfully aromatic, with flavors and aromas of Bosc and Anjou pear, peach, honeydew melon, lychee nut and grapefruit. Crisp and lean in texture and execution, with good length and a finish that echoes pear and citrus. Use it as you would a Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio.

The latest installment of a perennial amazing value, the 2008 Coteaux du Languedoc Picpoul de Pinet H.B. from the regionrsquo;s Cave de Pomerols coop (reviewed in past reports under its full, original name ldquo;Hugues Beaulieurdquo; mdash; which no longer appears on the label) smells of clover, musk, peaches, and melons. Its refreshing, yet downright lush, palate suggests salt-tinged honeydew and watermelon, with invigoratingly bitter and pungent notes of melon rind, peach kernel, and mint chiming in on a long, savory, lip-smacking finish. This is ideal ldquo;refrigerator white,rdquo; except for the fact that instead of putting the plastic stopper back into it, yoursquo;ll want to finish the bottle!

Quite a mouthful in more ways than one. Itrsquo;s been a long time since wersquo;ve had one of these to offer, now just in time for the tail-end of summer. Almost never allowed to solo, this grape gets blended with everything from Albarintilde;o to Zinfandel. How refreshing to revel in its rarefied purity. Delightfully aromatic, with flavors of Bosc and Anjou pear, honeydew melon, lychee nut and grapefruit. Crisp and lean in texture and execution. Use it as you would Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio.

Offering excellent value, the 2006 Picpoul de Pinet Hugues Beaulieu (from the regionrsquo;s Cave de Pomerols coop) smells of clover, lemon, and the refreshment of an ocean breeze. Subtly chalky and saline on the palate and lilting in its refreshing lemon, lime, and flowers, this is a perfect warm weather refresher or ldquo;refrigerator white.rdquo;

A lip-smacking, tangy wine from Southern France offering copious citrus fruit, lemon rind and mineral flavors that persist though a dry finish. Enjoy with peppery chicken accompanied by garden vegetables.

The 2002 (100% tank fermented Picpoul) exhibits copious quantities of tart grapefruit and green apple notes, light body, crisp, tangy acidity, and a refreshing, zesty personality. It is the kind of dry white that New World producers have yet to master. Enjoy it over the next year.

This 2001 is a fresh, lively, medium-bodied effort with surprising texture, wonderful floral/citrusy aromas and flavors, and a dry, zinging finish. This has been a perennial best buy selection from an excellent cooperative in the Languedoc. Few Americans have a clue as to what Picpoul is (the grape is actually called Folle Blanche), but who cares? It has more in common with Muscadet than anything else. Drink it over the next year.
