Picpoul

Groundwork Picpoul Carbonique

Very interesting dried fruit and floral aromatics. Zesty and grippy for rose. Reminded me a touch of aged rose Rioja. — 11 hours ago

Prestige Picpoul De Pinet 2019

Vintage 2019 | ooh I like these bitters, told my wife, where I found them... quite harsh. Curious picpoul de pinet with barrel aging. Much better with food when it gets rondeur and some charm. — 6 hours ago

As the weather warms, my thoughts turn to Picpoul. Green tasting with citrus, herbal and mineral notes. The acid lives up to its reputation, “Lip Stinger”. Yesterday, I drank it with sardines, so good. Today, I’m picking up some oysters and will finish off the bottle. — 24 days ago

@Kyle Harvey Hey Kyle, how ya been. Yes, I’m still floating around. I’m currently on the Rhône, south of Lyon, near Côte Rôtie. Sicily, will be the first place I travel to, when travel gets going again. Where are you now? Hope all is well.

Nice orange wine. A little syrupy and some tannins and smokiness — 7 months ago

Bonny Doon Vineyard

Beeswax Vineyard Picpoul 2020

This wine is tinted light yellow and puts up a magnificent nose which is driven by citrus and salinity. I don’t get much of the floral note mentioned by Grahm, but there is a waxy or soapy element in the package of aromas. The palate seems a bit heavier, oilier than bygone vintages, and the salinity comes across in the mouth as well as the nose. Meyer lemon flavors are abundant, and while the acidity may not actually sting the lips, it is nice and racy and it awaits some crab cakes or grilled calamari. — a month ago

Copain Estate Russian River Picpoul Blanc 2018

This stuff is brilliant. The 2019 is a bit more perfumed, a little more viscous. This 2018, though, is the big winner: light in color, grassy nose, and then lemon rind and brine. Maaaaybe a touch of green apple. This drinks like a Muscadet Sèvre et Maine, and that’s a wonderful thing. — 8 days ago

Domaine de Saint Siffrein

Blanc Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Smells of a chocolate coffee cake -

Cacao, dark cherry, smidgeon of menthol, cedar wrapped red fruit leather,
The wine is heavy handed and starts off with high alcohol, it needs time to blow off in order to get a good nose.
Love me some C to the D to the P.
