100% Pineau d’aunis - Low alcohol (11.5%), fruity, chuggable. Ruby red grapefruit on the nose, maybe a touch carbonic (bubblegum, some stem). Palate is low maintenance - low tannin, low-med acid (just enough to keep me sippin) and it essentially cleans the palate for the next sip or next bite. In this case, paired nicely with simple fried chicken cutlets, broccoli and sweet potato. Would bring to a picnic, party, or fun dinner!

Last one in the cellar. Love it. Can’t say enough about it. Flat bread with bacon, asparagus, radicchio, balsamic. Everyone who likes wine should be forced to drink this at least once. White pepper and fruit. Wasn’t sure it would age this long but it’s better than it was the last time I opened one.

Fresh, sappy red fruit, minerally. 100% pineau d'aunis. Did I spell that right?

Look at the size of the “Château” on the label. Something to be said for a humble on the outside, intense on the inside village wine.

A bit more grapefruit on the nose and the palate than the 2014. Still a light and gluggy delight with tart berries, hints of spice and faint but grippy bitterness.
