Hits the nose with scents of green apple, limestone, and a hint of tropical fruit. Tastes of citrus, apricot, and a flirty minerality. Bright and zippy on the finish.

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.

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.

Crazy good value. Best $9 white I've tried in a long time. Apple on the nose. Nice minerally but round feel in the mouth.Low alcohol. This is a delicious easy wine. Lemon-lime and brine finish. Please pass the oysters and shrimp cocktail.

One of the best sub-$10 wines. I agree with the apple and citrus flavors. It has a nice light acidic pop at the beginning. This is a nice light, dry wine that is especially drinkable, especially on a hot summer afternoon.

The green apple and white cherry flavors are backed by vibrant acidity in this fresh and spicy white. Currant and gooseberry notes linger on the finish. Drink now.

The Picpoul grape is one of the oldest varieties that grows in the Languedoc region of France. Lovely floral aromas are complemented by delicate fruit flavors in this delicious white wine. You can pick up nuances of honeydew melon, pear, white peach and a hint of lime zest on the palate. I love to sip this wine on its own, nicely chilled, on a hot summer day. Pair this with pan-seared flounder and sautéed spinach.

Coming from a large cooperative in the Languedoc-Roussillon corridor, Cave de Pomerols is an annual winner in the values sweepstakes. The 2012 Picpoul de Pinet, often known as the Muscadet of southern France, is a naked, 100% Picpoul (which is also known as Folle Blanche) offering plenty of grapefruit, citrus and wet rock-like characteristics in a light-bodied, crisp, elegant, dry, well-made style. It is not meant to age, so enjoy it over the next 6–12 months with shellfish and seafood.

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.

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;

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.

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.
