While we enjoy Pineau d'Aunis monovarietal wines, the addition of Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc to this blend serves to perfectly add concentration and fruit while not getting in the way of Pineau d'Aunis' signature spice, thus creating a more complete experience. Pristine notes of strawberries, rhubarb and raspberry sit over earthy tones of pottery soil, bell pepper skin. and rose petals. The palate is juicy and velvety with a mineral-forward texture that finishes with a mild velvet tannic touch with savory notes of sandalwood and turmeric.

8th generation Patrice Colin runs the estate. He honed his craft making wine in Greece, Germany and Anjou. He takes care of all operations from vineyard work to vinification and bottling; his wife Valérie oversees accounting, and their son-in-law Florian is in charge of sales and shipping. The family is helped by only one full time employee and some seasonal ones. The total production is 150,000 bottles, of which 50,000 are sparkling wine.
