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. — 7 days ago

“In the glass, the wine has a saturated dark cordovan color, almost black at the center, with flashes of garnet and mahogany at the edge. Aromas of black griotte cherries, crème de cassis, and licorice root, along with melted dark chocolate and a cornucopia of herbes de Provence and spices, move in and out of the foreground as the nose evolves in the glass. On the palate the wine is solid, smooth, and opulent, with sweet graphite-infused red and black fruit flavors that echo the nose, all seasoned with brilliant berry acids and wonderful graphite mineral brightness, and unfurling like a peacock’s tail, gaining weight over time in the glass. Palpable mineral extract, voluptuous silky tannins, and the low-pH Mourvèdre all contribute to the wine’s compelling opulence and length. Drink now – 2026.” —Moore Brothers — 13 days ago
