Tasting Notes

Pineau d'Aunis is a dark-skinned wine grape variety whose story began in the Loire Valley in the Middle Ages. Despite once being popular with royalty on both sides of the English Channel, the variety is now increasingly rare, and is limited to a role in the rosés and light reds of the central Loire. It is valued for the gently peppery spiciness it brings to the area's rosé wines, a role mirrored by the Carignan and Tibouren used to make the famous rosé wines of Provence. When the elements grant the Loire a vintage with warm weather more akin to that found in Provence, Pineau d'Aunis is also capable of producing distinctive and interesting red wines.

    I love the spice that this wine gives off aromatically. Lighter bodied on the palate with good spicy fruit on the finish. Mouthwatering, fresh and fun to enjoy.

    If you are looking for an incredible rosé for only $10, this is the bottle to buy. This beautiful Loire rosé is made from one of the lesser-known red varieties that has been grown in the area since the Middle Ages, Pineau d'Aunis. If you've ever had a red made from Pineau d'Aunis then you will see similarities in this rosé. Aromas of leaves and violets lead to flavors of tea, white pepper and melon with a backbone of minerality.
