Jancis Robinson – Picpoul de Pinet 2012

Calmel & Joseph, Villa Blanche 2012 Languedoc, Picpoul de Pinet – 16 Drink 2013-2015

Almost spicy (white pepper?) with the creaminess of white almonds. Some delicate blossom and herb fragrance. A gentle stoniness of the palate – something clean and super fresh that reminds me of a cool highland stream. Light green-apple crispness, a tarragon streak. I could just imagine this with smoked mackerel pâté and a crunchy fennel salad. (TC) 12.5%
