Les Athletes du Vin, Pineau d'Aunis 2020

pineau d'aunis

Regular price $24.99

Les Athletes du Vin
Loire, France

One of my favorite grapes from the Loire for its original authenticity and is not so common availability.  Crunchy, perfumed red berry and cherry fruits are spiked with notes of spices, like cracked peppercorns and savory notes.  A grape being brought back from almost extinction, it is gaining traction as one of the most original Loire expressins for red wines.  This is very much a chillable red wine for the summer and fall to have with grilled fare of all kinds, including from the sea.  If you gravitate to youthful expressions of cabernet franc but with the elegance of Bourgogne or Beaujolais, this is not one to miss!
