This interesting varietal yields body, liveliness, purity of flavor and crisp dryness in impressive and inexpensive fashion. The Domaine St. Peyre's rendition offers big but focused and refreshing flavor elements of melon, lemon and grapefruit. It's a terrific aperitif, but is truly celebrated with all shellfish and seafood, as well as full flavored white-meat dishes, cheeses and cured meats. It is greenish- pale yellow, with enticing aromas of lime, smoke, honeysuckle and white flowers, bright and smooth, medium-bodied, with a grapy, rather dense mouth feel, a nicely integrated acidity and a very clean, lengthy finish. Comparison can be drawn to Sancerre-style Sauvignon Blanc, but there are exotic nuances all Picpoul's own. This zingy, delicious, but virtually unknown wine deserves a look-see from all intrepid wine aficionados.
