Refined summer sipper, elegant dinner aperitif. What did Hugh Johnson say about PF? Something like “consistently disappointing.” I guess, however, it depends on your view. There is kumquat, orange rind, grapefruit pith, so the bouquet and finish combine from sour to stinging. But the gobs of unctuous citris provide a long, round finish with a nutty, fresh cut grass flourish. This certainly isn’t NZ Sauv Blanc. No, it’s a gift from France. Wrap it up and serve it with vichyssoise.
Price: $17 USD in Seattle.
Market Liquidity: It’s the proverbial smiley emoticon. With a beret of course.
