L Ormarine Duc de Morny Picpoul de Pinet, Coteaux du Languedoc

Tax included.

Cave de l'Ormarine's vineyards lie at approximately 40 metres above sea level on a chalky clay plateau, rich in Cretaceous limestone and quartz. The vineyards lie to the North of the Lac de Thau and slope towards it. Ormarine's head winemaker Cyril Payon makes this Duc de Morny cuvée with a premium selection of grapes from 15+ year old vines, harvested at night to retain their aromatic freshness. They are de-stemmed and macerated on their skins followed by a fifteen-day fermentation without malolactic fermentation.

Incredibly vibrant and fresh - Picpoul is the next big thing! L'Ormarine 'Duc de Morny' Picpoul de Pinet is slightly perfumed, ripe melon fruit on the nose. The palate is weighty and ripe but remains fresh and saline. This is the perfect example of the right grapes grown in the right soil and it's probably why it has a list of awards and accolades like no other wine we sell. It's easily the most awarded wine in the shop! Grapes for this wine are grown only a stone's throw from oyster leases in Étang de Thau bay - it is a perfect match for oysters, mussels, and grilled fish. Alternatively, you could just drink on its own..

Cave de l’Ormarine, Duc de Morny, Picpoul de Pinet 2020: “Lovers of Southern France’s Picpoul de Pinet must surely idolise Cave de l’Ormarine who make this particular example. They are a smart, forward looking co-operative that celebrate their centenary this year and seem to have perfected the production of that delightful, seafood friendly white wine. Rounded yet floral, this one has stylish quince, apple and melon favours partnered by sherbet lemon acidity and saline influenced hints of herbs and thyme.”
