Picpoul de Pinet from Coteaux du Languedoc L’Ormarine France is nicknamed ‘la bomba’ for its incredibly fruity concentrated character it has a floral enticing nose with a crisp fruity long lasting taste.

These factors meant a very long ripening period and created wines with lovely balance. They are de-stemmed and macerated on their skins followed by a fifteen day fermentation without malolactic fermentation.
The producer –
Cave de l’Ormarine is an award-winning co-operative which produces wines from the tiny Pinet appellation in the Hérault. Relatively recently incorporated in 1992, its history dates back to 1922. The owner has made significant investment in the winery, and prides itself on the high standard and traceability of its grapes. Cyril Payon is a meticulous winemaker and he carefully selects and picks his grapes at different times to capture different flavour profiles. 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.
