Picpoul Blanc

Bending Branch Winery

Estate Picpoul Blanc 2021

This Texas wine has a nice golden hue and a nose which sports apricots, Meyer lemons, wet-sidewalk minerality, salinity and a touch of lanolin. The palate is just as wonderful, with stone fruit, minerals, spices and herbs. The acidity is as great as advertised. This wine should pair well with seafood, salads or sandwiches - I had mine with a salami and cheese creation on rosemary sourdough and it was fabulous. — 24 days ago

Les Denisottes Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

9.5

Superb nose of mineral, lemon zest, pink grapefruit and wonderful lime flesh and zest. Gorgeous mineral depth here. Lots of earth as well. Almost a Burgundian interpretation of Sancerre. Juicy and insanely complex palate that is finesse driven and so delicate. Wonderful sap and has a grandiose quality to it and finish that does not quit. Hugely concentrated but never heavy and a gamey/savory element on the palate. So sappy and pure. Round like Keller can be. Just a gorgeous bottle. Blown Away. Will last 10-15 more years. — a day ago

Yes, I like to let these rest a bit, but they are great

Vie di Romans

Pierre Sauvignon 2018

Medium gold, explosive aromas of ripe pineapple , lychee, kumquat and green melon. The wine is rich, nearly viscus, and packing serious weight. Long, sweet but balanced, mid-palate. Close to over-the-top in richness, but the flavors carry the day. A long way from Sancerre, but a style and food-friendliness that I have to acknowledge. At times I wasn’t sure, but finished the bottle….. and smiled! — 6 days ago

Coteaux du Languedoc Picpoul-de-Pinet Picpoul Blanc 2021

I’m usually not a white wine drinker, but this one is complex enough to hold my attention! Nice notes of honeysuckle without being sweet, and a bit of minerality to add a depth to the flavor profile. This will be a staple white for me for sure. — 13 days ago

Goutte D'Or Moelleux Vouvray Chenin Blanc 1990

Couleur presque brune, un nez incroyable, du fruit confit, une texture sirupeuse un peu, il y a encore de l’acidité pour aider à balancer un peu cette richesse extravagante, la longueur est interminable. Belle expérience d’en boire un verre ou deux. 93-94

Almost brown in colour, the nose is amazingly complex, the texture is almost like syrup, there is still some acidity to balance that richness that is almost too much, and the sugar is wow, but it is still delicious and the length never stops, great experience to drink this wine that was made in only 4 vintages.
