About The Wine
This is a misleadingly dry and flavoursome sparkling Vouvray. On the nose you get smashed with apricot Danish and green apple. Super dry on the palate with subtle lingering notes of green apple, pulled together with tight minerality and bright acidity.
About Domaine Francois et Julien Pinon
This beautiful Domaine was established in 1786 and has been passed down through eight generations of Pinon’s until Francois took the reins in 1987 from his father and immediately set to working in a more ethical and environmentally friendly way. Fast forward a decade and Francois was joined by his son Julien in the cellar and in 2003 they achieved organic certification. The pair believe that organic practices allow the terroir to sing and demonstrate nuances that cannot be achieved with conventional farming.
Sadly Francois passed away in 2021, leaving the vineyard in the very capable hands of his son Julien.
