Domaine Felines Jourdan Picpoul de Pinet 2011
The ancient Picpoul de Pinet grape finds its best terroirs in the Languedoc, near the Etang de Thau, at the edge of the Mediterranean. The white wines from this variety are floral, fruity, and mineral-rich, with a lovely streak of acidity to refresh the palate. In fact, 'Picpoul' means 'lip-smacking' in the regional dialect.
Crisp and refreshing with tropical fruit notes.
The name translates to "lip stinger" and how accurate it is. This is everything I want in a white wine from the laser-like acidity to the full range of citrus fruits. I'll admit to being surprised this came out of Languedoc.
