Julien Pineau

Julien Pineau VDF Blanc Chicos 2021


no added sulfur

Country: France

Region: Loire

Type: White Wine

Grape: Colombard

2021 was a tough vintage in the Loire because of devastating frost and hail, which left many winemakers in the region searching for outside grape sources. Julien Pineau was able to pivot by sourcing Colombard from Domaine Jeandaugé in Southwest France. The fruit was pressed at the domaine then aged in 50% barrel and 50% vat. The result is a dynamic, nuanced and mineral expression of this underrepresented French varietal.
