Felines Jourdan Picpoul de Pinet 2012

Sku: 067074

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.

Tasting notes
100% Picpoul. A refreshing, light, and lively wine, redolent of white flowers and verdant fruits, apples and pears, with hints of white pepper, on a fresh structure that ends with lip-smacking acidity, keeping you coming back for more.

Wine maker notes
Winemaker Claude Jourdan manages to make an expressive wine that shows its refreshing finesse and elegance by working with three different vineyards: Les Félines, La Coulette, and Les Cadastres. The vines average 25 years of age and are planted in Jurassic soils, rich in gravel. Her Picpoul is aged in stainless steel and on its lees for 3 months before being filtered and bottled.
