Francois et Julien Pinon
Francois et Julien Pinon Vouvray Petillant Brut 2017
France / Loire
Andy's Tasting Notes
The Pinon’s have an excellent reputation for their Champagne method sparkling wine, which exudes crisp and fresh tasting flavours of orchard fruits coupled with baked apple and zingy acidity. A lovely mousse and gently dry yet creamy finish. Appealing, rounded and invigorating.
Will age well, developing a moreish, soft peaches and cream finish.
Closure – cork
Price per bottle £19.55
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.
