Chenin Blanc from a parcel of old vines planted over schist, farmed by the Robinot’s friend Damien Bureau in Anjou. After two years resting in barrels, it is a wine that really reflects the vintage with big bold notes of baked apple, minerals and lingering spice. Easygoing, expressive, complex red, a proper beaut.

For lovers of real wine, the name Jean-Pierre Robinot and his story are legendary. He fell in love with wine at a young age, moved to Paris, met some of the natural wine movements true pioneers and subsequently opened one of the first bars dedicated to such wines in the city, L’Ange Vin and founded France’s premier journal on the topic, ‘Le Rouge et le Blanc’. It was only a matter of time before he could not resist the urge to join the vignerons he so loved and in the early two thousands he left Paris and moved back to the village where he grew up in the very north of the Loire to do just that.
