2018 Picardan Estate

$32.00

An obscure variety found in tiny amounts in the blends of Chateauneuf-du-Pape – prized for the acidity it can add to the blend – gets Diva treatment here as a featured soloist. The nose draws you in with floral and peach aromas in front, backed by citrus and wet stone. The palate shows the extra hang time given the grapes, allowing ripeness tempered acidity to round out the midpalate and let the fruit express itself fully. There’s plenty of brightness, and notes of bay leaf and white pepper add interest. Brava! 90 Points: Reviewed by Rich Cook Silver Medal: Sommelier’s Challenge International
