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.

Super fun and funky Rose! With a waxy, pithy texture, and aromas of blood orange and black pepper spice, this wine would go great with spanish food and hot mediterranean nights. Yet, I decided to see how it went with Korean. It was great with spicey kimchi, beef bulgogi and tangy korean pork. This is a super fun, out of the box wine.
