Le Jade Picpoul de Pinet 2007

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

The 2007 Coteaux du Languedoc Picpoul de Pinet Le Jade is an overtly mineral, saline, savory rendition of its appellation, though still with floral and musk melon character. Invigorating hints of pear skin and a silky feel distinguish its palate impression and this cuvée sports a bit more finish if slightly less sheer thirst-quenching juiciness than the Hugues Beaulieu. Enjoy either of these wines over the next nine months, and you can safely put each new vintage on your shopping list to keep around in the refrigerator: both novice and jaded palates will be able to agree on the quality of the quaffing white you offer them.

Made from Picpoul, an obscure grape from the Languedoc, this wine is one of the more interesting ones that I've tried in some time. The color and aromas are reminiscent of Pinot Grigio, with flavors of citrus and zest leading to a finish that is quite refreshing. The perfect summer afternoon wine at the pool.

100% Picpoul, a.k.a. Folle Blanche. Pale yellow color with green tints. Fresh and fine aromas of grapefruit and exotic fruit. Lime flavors, with typical focusing acidity, are hallmarks of Picpoul. Our best value, this wine impresses novices and hardened geeks equally. Known as "the Muscadet of the South" in France.
