Happy Hour: 2005 Domaine Felines Jourdan Coteaux du Languedoc Picpoul de Pinet

A few weeks ago I waltzed into my local wine shop to see the gracious owner Jason. I was home alone for the week and wanted a delicious and refreshing bottle of white wine to enjoy all by myself. He pulled me aside and gave me this bottle! If you have yet to build a relationship with your neighborhood wine guy, use my free bottle of wine as an example: do it! I drank the smooth, crisp wine with a zesty bite and dry finish in one sitting. Naturally I had to share this wine with you, but when I started to read the label I got a little confused - I'm fluent in Spanish, not French. Luckily I talked to a very informed wine snob friend and got the lowdown:

  • Coteaux du Languedoc refers to a region in the South of France.
  • Picpoul de Pinet refers to the type of grape or the wine varietal.
  • Domaine Felines Jourdan is the name of the winery.
  • Generally Picpoul de Pinets are light, fragrant, and floral wines that work well as a bright apperitifs or paired with seafood.

lexichloe: since it was free I'm not exactly sure of the price! I vaguely remember handing Jason a 20 and him handing it back to me. I generally don't get bottles that are more than $17 so it was moderately priced. Now that I think about it I'm pretty sure it was $15.
