Domaine Felines Jourdan Picpoul de Pinet
Picpoul de Pinet is made exclusively from the Piquepoul variety growing in the Languedoc Rousillon region of Southern France. The appellation is one of very few in the region to be dedicated to white wine production. The reason for this is because the area is situated beside a lagoon which tempers the warm temperatures with cooling ocean breezes. The Piquepoul variety has grown in this region for centuries and has adapted to the climate. It ripens late and retains acidity. The name of the grape translates to ‘lip stinger” on account of its acidity. This wine comes from 3 different vineyard sites in different parts of the appellation. The wine has citrus and green fruit flavours with a distinctive salty character and of course that racy acidity.
