Francois et Julien Pinon Vouvray ‘Les Deronnieres’ 2019

France / Loire

Andy's Tasting Notes

Showing pronounced minerality with a delicious subtle fruit overtone of quince, baked apple and orange oil.  The finish is chalky and zesty with an appealing dryness and zip.

Produced from 50+ year old vines, this is a very special site specific bottling produced on clay and limestone rather silex (flint) soils.

Treat this like a young red wine in its youth, and decant to open up its delightful floral and aromatic top notes.

Will age and develop wonderfully for 15 – 20 years.

Producer Info

Sadly Francois Pinon passed away in June 2020 leaving this hugely respected and loved estate in the very capable hands of his son Julien (who took over the overall running of the estate in 2018).

The estate comprises 15 organically farmed hectares, spread across 15 different plots – mainly on the varied clay, limestone and silex soils located towards the head of the Vallee de Cousse, which are widely rated amongst the best sites within the appellation.

These are pristine, age worthy examples of Vouvray and are regarded as some of the very best in the region.
