2018 Jean-Pierre Robinot Années Folles
For lovers of real wine, the name Jean-Pierre Robinot and his story are legendary.
Jean-Pierre farms a total of seven hectares of land across two appellations, Jasnières and the Coteaux-du-Loir. The vines are planted over a mix of red clay, limestone and silex and are tended organically, with the majority of treatments coming in the form of infusions of wild plants such as nettles and ferns. Parcels are harvested by hand individually and fermentations take place in the labyrinth of ancient limestone caves beneath the vines. They go slow and steady and can often last months, even years. Another wonderful pet nat from Jean-Pierre. This pet nat rosé is made from a direct press of Pineau d’Aunis that began fermentation in cuve, spent nine months on lees in bottle and was disgorged by hand. A beautiful rusty shade of pink, there is a bittersweet character to the fruit which offers real intrigue. Tutto Wines
