Region: Pic Saint-Loup, Languedoc, France
Bottle size: 75cl
The nose displays vibrant citrus and white floral aromas with lively acidity on the palate and bright citrus and stone fruit flavours on the palate.
The vineyards are located outside of the Picpoul appellation, which is why the spelling of the 'Picpoul' grape is the alternative spelling 'Piquepoul'.
Caves de Richemer lies between the Mediterranean Sea and the sea lagoon Lagune de Thau on the coast of the Southern Languedoc. The name Richemer stems from 19th century tales of a modest winegrower, Henri Richet, who so quickly made his fortune in trading wines from the old port of Marseillan, that people gave him the nickname ‘Henri de Richemer’. The seahorse on the label is the emblem of Caves de Richemer and is native to the lagoon.
