Domaine Felines Jourdan Picpoul de Pinet 2008
Made under anaerobic conditions, the wine has fine colouring with hints ofgreen. A spicy and floral nose, distinctive and with echoes of gunflint,aniseed and fennel. En bouche, crisp but balanced acidity, mineral notes and asurprisingly broad texture.. The 2008 is especially successful, it marriageof oyster shell, pebbles and almost a hint of honey crying out forfruits de mer, grilled fish and, when in season, asparagus.
Melon and grapefruit peel on the nose, fresh pear on the palate, medium weight white, good acidity
"Picpoul de Pinet stands out as a source of white wine in the Coteaux du Languedoc, where red otherwise dominates. This is a fairly classic example. Minerals and sea salt on the nose of this moderately pale wine, with hints of shells, green vegetables and melons. A little weight on the palate, but otherwise this is a fresh, whistle-clean white with lovely acidity, notes of melon fruit and a good, grippy finish."
