Domaine Le Briseau 'Le Verre des Poetes' VDF NV
Producer: Domaine Le Briseau (Nathalie Gaubicher)
Varietal: Pineau d'Aunis
Notes: A very special cuvée of Pineau d’Aunis from 80 year-old, south-west facing vines, planted in clay-limestone soils. Harvest is manual – yields being around 20hl/ha (that’s very, very low!). The grapes were placed ‘whole bunch’ into 50-hectolitre fibreglass vats for seven to eight months and fermented naturally with minimal extraction and the wine was bottled without filtration or fining and just a little SO2 before bottling.
