Picpoul de Pinet Villa Blanche 2016 Calmel & Joseph
A clean, bright appearance, with the lightest hint of green. The nose is intense, with notes of white blossom, citrus fruit (kiwi) and fresh mint. On the palate it is generous, mouth-filling and well-balanced, with a mineral finish. Elegant and easy-drinking in its youth, this wine will age well, developing notes of spice and a certain iodine/saline character. A Picpoul de Pinet that could grace a dining table or be enjoyed as an aperitif, with seafood or cheese.
Jancis Robinson 2016 15 / 20 : Crisp and clean, melon and papaya!
Saint Chinian AOP Calmel & Joseph, 2014
This wine is made from a blend of grapes, 70% of which come from vines planted on a clay-limestone soil and 30% from vines planted on schist. Deep red hue. Intense on the nose with harmonious ripe aromas: cherries mingling with plums and slightly peaty notes. It is clean and straightforward on the palate with a nice hint of bitterness which lifts the finish which has an iodized touch. The wine is tauter than the preceding vintage. Lovely overall balance and a gorgeous tannic grain. A lovely vintage best appreciated in the next 7-8 years.
