100% Picpoul Blanc. There is not a whole lot of Picpoul in this country and I never thought I would find one in Texas, but here it is. And it's good. Really good. Tropical and peachy on the nose with a rond, luscious mouthfeel. Great fruit, a bit of spice, and enough tartness to bring it all together. Reds rule the roost in Texas, but this Picpoul is among the better whites I have tried since moving here nearly seven years ago. 91 pts. thedrunkencyclist.com
