Cave de l'Ormarine
Picpoul de Pinet has become very fashionable once again. The freshness and clarity of wines from this coastal region in Languedoc is almost Alsacian in focus, but more relaxed in concentration and flavour potency. The floral nature could be compared to Pinot Blanc, but there is a deftness of touch that many of these Picpouls possess that really sets it apart as a wine style. Matching food could concern some people as the flavours are not very highly concentrated, but there is a feature of this wine that top-notes carry over most foods and you can experience a light and elegant flavour set, rather than something trying to combat food flavours in your mouth. In this sense, Picpoul is excellent as an accompaniment to food, allowing the ingredients to be tasted first. Picpoul is also a great aperitif.
