PICPOUL DE PINET
2017 Domaine Reine Juliette
You will be familiar with the Picpoul grape and its innocent charms. How about tasting a top-flight version with some real attitude and a genuinely impressive flavour? Well, this version is crisp, classy and very long and it is delicious with the Prosciutto wrapped peaches with figs and buffalo mozzarella. Matthew Jukes www.matthewjukes.com (May 2018)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Lime bonbons on the nose and clean, fresh, zesty on the palate. Vibrant. Lime and pears. Fills the mouth. Good Picpoul! Rating: 16 Tamlyn Currin - www.JancisRobinson.com (May 2018)
We can't tell you who Queen Juliette was but what we can say is that this appetising dry white from near the Languedoc's mussel and oyster beds displays an inviting apple and pear fragrance that gets the saliva juices going in anticipation of its crisp appley fruit with its hint of greengage while its clean, dry finish really does have you hankering for a plate of moules marinières.

Domaine Reine Juliette
Domaine Reine Juliette, supposedly named after a visit to the area by Queen Juliette, is the family vineyard of Guillaume Allies. It has vineyards on the southern side of the modern A9 Montpellier-Beziers road, which itself follows the course of the Roman Via Domitia, the main road from Italy to Spain. This southern part of the Pinet appellation is along the edge of the Bassin de Thau, a huge inland sea, and is the most affected by cooling sea breezes, which accounts for the particular freshness of expression is these whites.
