Staff Reviews

Alan Herrmann - Prestige Wine & Spirits June 6, 2017

"Picpoul is appropriately named “lip stinger” because of its bright acidity and juicy freshness. Grown in Languedoc, it is influenced by sea breezes that limit daytime temperature, and is protected at night by a lagoon. The wine has a crystal clear appearance with a hint of green, making it very inviting on a hot summer day. On the nose there are notes of white flowers, unripe peach, and wild herbs with citrus overtones. On the palate it is crisp and zingy, with refreshing lemon-lime flavors complemented by a hint of salt. This is a perfect wine to pair with fresh oysters, but it will work with other shellfish and fish dishes as well."

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
