L'Ormarine Duc de Morny Picpoul de Pinet
- Picpoul de Pinet, Southern France, France
- Caves de l'Ormarine
- Piquepoul Blanc
From an award winning Co-op, produced from vineyards of limestone soils. A lean, citrus nose with a balanced palate of mineral and citrus fruit.
Slightly perfumed, ripe melon fruit on the nose. The palate is weighty and ripe but remains fresh and saline. After a well-rounded attack, the palate is lifted up by a crisp note typical of the wines from this terroir.

Picpoul vines grow just inland from the Étang de Thau, home to southern Languedoc's famous oyster & mussel beds. Along the coast you'll find cabins where locals gather to feast on mussels or 'huitres braisees' (oysters cooked over a fire pit) which is perfect with a glass of Picpoul de Pinet.

Cave de l'Ormarine is an award-winning co-operative which produces wines from the tiny Pinet de Picpoul appellation in the Hérault. The Ormarine cellar was established in 1922 when winegrowers from Pinet joined forces and formed a winegrowers’ association. Its flagship Picpoul wines are fresh and terroir-driven, and hugely influenced by both the Mediterranean Sea and the Etang de Thau, which act as a thermal regulator for the vineyards. Cave de l'Ormarine has made significant investment in its winery, and prides itself on the high standard and traceability of its grapes.
