Domaine Felines Jourdan Picpoul de Pinet 2012
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.
Editorial Reviews for Domaine Felines Jourdan Picpoul de Pinet
Apples and spice notes on the nose are joined by a fine edge of limestone. A bit loose upfront but the juicy acidity gathers the yellow fruits across the mid-palate and leads to a solid finish which has nice mineral grab. 86pts
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.
Sweet, smooth, but slightly acidic.
Tastes smooth after the first sip. Great sweet/sour balance and fragrance.
Five and a HALF! This is one of my favorite all-time whites...not only because of the nostalgia that wafts through it but also because of it's tried and true freshness, simplicity, and versatility. Summer in a glass!
This is a very nice Picpoul; classic flower and citrus aromas, with good acidity and minerality. Perfect wine with seafood.
