Piquepoul
Grab an oyster, a glass and pour. The locals love it, and so do we.

Production
In Languedocian dialect the word Picpoul litterally means "lip stinger", in reference to the wine's zippy acidity. In French proper the translation would be Levre Piquante. The wine is made by the sustainability focussed Ormarine, who with their 470 members have put this wine firmly on the map.
Piquepoul blanc grapes are grown on the hills above the Med, just a stone's throw from the world famous Bassan de Thau Oyster Farms! The grapes are harvested in mid-September, fermented at a cool temperature in stainless steel and bottled soon after.
Tasting Notes
Levre Piquante is unashamedly fresh and citrussy. The palate is lively, zesty and impossible to dislike. Open straight from the fridge in the sunshine and match with seafoods; in particular Oysters, as the locals do.
