Domaine Jousset - Menu Pineau 2018
Region: Montlouis / Loire
Grapes: Menu Pineau
This is a very old, traditional Touraine (Loire) grape variety. It has a bit more volume and weight than the other varieties, but the Jousset's also know how to get the buzz of electricity into it, to keep the wine upright and long.
I feel it is somewhere in between Riesling & Chardonnay, to me - aromatic, full, rich, yet long and zippy. This is a delightful wine, truly a winner, with no SO2 added at any stage. Very rare, so be quick if you’re keen.
