Winemaker: Christophe Foucher

Grape: Pineau d'Aunis

Region: Couffy, Loire

Very exciting to bring in the first and perhaps only Pineau d’Aunis from Christophe. It’s a parcel owned by his father in law, which Christophe has long helped to tend. The grapes often go into Olivier Lemassons Poivre E Sel. He gave the grapes a 15 day whole bunch maceration; pressed, mixed both the 'jus de goutte' and 'jus de press'; and then put it into barrels for about 8 months, during which it finished its alcoholic fermentation and did its malolactic fermentation; then reassembled all the barrels in a vat and bottled the wine (by gravity and no use of a mechanical pump) no sulfites added nor anything else for that matter. Really beautiful fruit, with an incredibly elegant texture. A real treat.
