Domaine Felines Jourdan, Picpoul de Pinet

Domaine Felines Jourdan is a Languedoc estate run by the talented Claude Jourdan, whose family has been winemaking in the area for many generations. The family bought Domaine Félines in 1983, changing the name to Domaine Félines Jourdan to mark the start of its, and their, new chapter.

Picpoul de Pinet, a variety that was granted AOC status in 1985, prompting winemakers to produce better and better examples since. The name Picpoul de Pinet refers to the town of Pinet in the very south of France, and Félines Jourdan’s 40ha estate is based nearby in Mèze. Much of their vineyards are right on the Mediterranean coast at the edge of the Thau Lagoon (or Bassin de Thau), a picturesque body of water that is home to flamingoes and is particularly famous for its oysters, which are perfectly suited to a glass of Picpoul de Pinet.

Recognising the importance of these wonderful natural surroundings, Félines Jourdan practices sustainable viticulture, and are committed to protecting not only the vineyards, but also the lagoon and the nearby bird reserve.

A complex wine which expresses hints of citrus fruit, aniseed, fennel, honeysuckle, acacia, and has a light minerality. In mouth, the typical acidity of Picpoul de Pinet is present, along with a really beautiful structure, ample, pleasant and harmonious. Delicious with all kinds of seafood but great to drink on its own in the sunshine too!
