2016 VDF 'P'tite Berthe'
100% Organic Pineau d’Aunis. Soft pressing of grapes and 6 months élevage in tanks. 20mg/L SO2 used at bottling.
Pineau d’Aunis muskiness with a purple wine gum note on the nose. Still, very bright and nasal energizing. Light with background tannin drift, this wine is simple and easy, glou glou like, with not too much to think about. A good everyday wine, that is not super complex, but still satisfying. It’s not trying to be anything, but it’s good at being itself – easy and tasty. *day 3. Spicy dark nose with dark berries and pepper. Very nice acid, underlying grip with chewy tannins. Fresh and juicy, great acidity. Slightly peppery in the mouth too. Very well made, still perfect on day 3, if not better. Was more juice on day one but now more a wine. After 10 days this wine is stronger than ever. Massive structure, tension and tweaky acidity. Beautiful aromats too.
