Levre Piquante Picpoul de Pinet


From the sunny South of France guaranteed to quench your thirst this summer. Literally translated, Picpoul means to “stings the lips,” in a nod to it’s traditional high acidity.

This is produced just a stone’s throw from the immense Etang de Thau oyster farms and they say it is the metaphorical squeeze of lemon on your oyster or the delicate spray of sea on your face. Lévre Piquante is as fresh as it gets.

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 vignerons from Pinet joined forces and formed a winegrowers’ association. Today, the Cave de l’Ormarine is a conglomeration of five separate co-operatives from across the Hérault, each with their own specific terroirs and styles of wine.

It is proud to have 470 members farming more than 2,500 hectares of vines.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. In fact, it is said of Picpoul that, “Son terroir, c’est la mer (Its terroir is the sea).”Cave de l’Ormarine has made significant investment in its winery, and prides itself on the high quality standard and traceability of its grapes.
