Food Pairings for Pomerols Picpoul Pinet H.B
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.
A really nice, refreshingly light white. The nose is full of cucumber and melon and a soft on the palate.
Scents of apple and lemon. Clean, but a bit warm. Salty and lemon on the finish.
The wine was pale gold in color. It’s crisp and refreshing and well-balanced. A wonderful white wine on a hot summer day. Perfect with a plate of oysters. It has some acidity and minerals to go along with the taste of limes, melons, and oranges. There is a nice long finish.
pale lemon color; lemon-lime citrus, grapefruit, green apple, peach on the nose; medium body, medium acidity, nice finish; overall, nice fruit forward, yet balanced wine that is super easy to drink...and for 9 bucks? i'd buy a case!
Apples and mineral on the nose. Weak flavors with lemon and apple notes. Sweeter, bitter finish.
External Reviews for Pomerols Picpoul Pinet H.B
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. A fantastic value, this wine impresses novices and hardened geeks equally. Known as the Muscadet of the South in France, this is to the Mediterranean coast of France what Albarino is to northwest Spain the default wine for fresh shellfish & seafood.
Fresh, clean and vibrant, with pleasant flavors of grapefruit and tart green apple. A refreshing wine that will match well with many appetizers, it possesses mild acidic notes that lead to a pleasant finish.
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.
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.
From the Côteaux du Languedoc comes this intriguingly dry, single-varietal white made from the Picpoul grape. Delightfully aromatic, with flavors and aromas of Bosc and Anjou pear, peach, honeydew melon, lychee nut and grapefruit. Crisp and lean in texture and execution, with good length and a finish that echoes pear and citrus. Use it as you would a Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio.
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.
The latest installment of a perennial amazing value, the 2008 Coteaux du Languedoc Picpoul de Pinet H.B. from the region's Cave de Pomerols coop (reviewed in past reports under its full, original name "Hugues Beaulieu" - which no longer appears on the label) smells of clover, musk, peaches, and melons. Its refreshing, yet downright lush, palate suggests salt-tinged honeydew and watermelon, with invigoratingly bitter and pungent notes of melon rind, peach kernel, and mint chiming in on a long, savory, lip-smacking finish. This is ideal "refrigerator white," except for the fact that instead of putting the plastic stopper back into it, you'll want to finish the bottle!
