Domaine Le Briseau Patapon Rouge 2015

This is the wonderful, peppy red grape pineau d’aunis from Jasnières, Loire Valley. A cottage industry producer, farming biodynamically, making expressive, unadorned wines. The variety pineau d’aunis so often satisfying for medium weight, fine ripple of tannin, savouriness, and all found here. The small estate was established by Christian Chaussard and Natalie Gaubicher, with the former becoming a luminary in natural wine circles. Unfortunately an accident took Chaussard from this world, though the estate is in the car of Gaubicher ongoing. Some great wines emerging.
