L’Ormarine Extra Brut Piquepoul, Méthode Traditionnelle (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
The piquepoul grape is native to southern France where, even this far south, can yield fruit with high acidity that is perfect for sparkling wines. There are two theories as to the meaning of the word ‘piquepoul’ – the first translation is ‘lip stinger’ which is the effect of the high acidity of the grape; the second refers hens (‘poul’) in the vineyards pecking/lancing (‘picque’) the low hanging grapes.
Cave de l'Ormarine is an award-winning co-operative which produces wines from the tiny Pinet de Picpoul appellation in the Hérault. L’Ormarine Extra Brut Piquepoul, Méthode Traditionnelle wine is fresh, fun and full of finesse! With a delicately spiced, fruity nose, this wine is fresh and nicely rounded with plenty of texture and ripe lemon acidity. Fantastic with oysters and shellfish as the perfectly pitched acid neutralises the salt and iodine in seafood.
