Robinot. Madman de Loire. He doesn’t rush anything. He makes wines you haven’t tried before.
L’Opera Des Vins is a mixed bag of Pineau d’Anuis and Chenin in Pet Nat form.
Pours a beautiful bright orange creamsicle. Tiny bubbles, lots of them. Deep yeast driven fruity notes of blood oranges, persimmon, Ceylon cinnamon, and coriander.
It’s hard to tell if this is truly off dry or truly fruity. Or both.
As special and interesting as any Pet Nat I’ve ever tried. — 3 months ago

Maybe the most delicious dry wine I’ve ever had. That does not mean the best. It’s very good. But the most delicious.
Nose is balanced tropical fruit and some floral elements. Nice. As it opens (45 minutes) tropical fruit perfume. Pure Amazon jungle.
The palate is sick. The most perfect elegant tropical fruit cocktail ever. A touch of honey. Not overblown. Just perfect. You could drink an entire bottle in about 5 minutes. So good. Juicy and delicious. Not super mineral. Lovely texture. Announces its presence in a clear yet unobtrusive way. Like an English butler.
Finish is lovely tropical fruit. Long. Juicy. Echoes of large stone minerality. Maybe some nuttiness.

Good everyday red, especially for the price. Stock up and have on hand. Sure it tastes a little cheap but good cheap. Well balanced and finishes clean with a sense of the Vaucluse. — a month ago

The nose has some white fruit, flinty with it seems a little bit of reduction. The palate is wide and full, despite nice tension that shows more with some air and with the wine warming up, a nice Chablis character with this salinity that comes out more and more, length is okay. Is it a high level Chablis Grand Cru, probably not but could be in a few years and is a very good bottle right now. 90-91
Nez de fruits blancs, pierre à fusil et un brin de réduction il me semble. La bouche est assez large et ample malgré une belle tension qui accompagne le tout, petit côté salin et définitivement Chablisien, longueur correcte, un haut niveau de Grand Cru? Pas certain mais un très bon Chablis et qui gagnera sans doute à être attendu un peu. 90-91 — 3 months ago
