Description

100% Pineau d'Aunis The vineyards of the Vendomois are located on both banks of the river Lair, a tributary of the Loire itself and is France's most northerly wine producing region. Pineau d' Aunis is a grape variety with a very specific flavour profile, notably white pepper. It is the only permitted variety for use in the making of rose (or Gris) wines. This dry example comes from a four hectare vineyard that has been identified for the quality of the fruit that the site delivers. A nose of pink grapefruit, spices and flints with red pepper.Tastes of expressive fresh and fruity roundness, very elegant and complex. A great presence of aromas of citrus and raspberry with hints of cardamom and peppery zest with fine crisp lemons. Rarely grown outside of Loire, Pineau d'Aunis has a characteristically fresh, peppery finish which complements the bright, zesty fruit on the palette. Perfect with chicken, seafood, strawberries, sweet curries, light salads.
