Picpoul de Pinet - Les Courtelles - Cave de L'Ormarine - Languedoc - France
Cave de L'Ormarine
Made from grapes grown close to the Mediterranean shore, this is a bone-dry white wine, with a distinctive combination of nuttiness, peach fruit and stoney flavours.
Les Courtelles is situated in Pinet, a small village located in the heart of the Languedoc. The vineyard consists of a chalky plateau overlooking the Mediterranean sea, where the exceptional vineyard situation and uniqueness of the Picpoul variety make the appellation unlike any other in the world.
Picpoul is a relatively unusual white grape variety found chiefly in the Languedoc Cru of Picpoul de Pinet producing green-gold, full-bodied white wine with concentrated citrus characteristics along France's mediterranean coast. It appears as one of France's few varietally named AC wines.
