Domaine Le Briseau Patapon Rouge
Region: Loire Valley
Grapes: Pineau d'Aunis
Domaine Le Briseau in northern Tourraine is run along biodynamic lines by Nathalie Gaubicher, a former actress from Switzerland who set up the vineyard with husband Christian Chaussard in 2002 with the purchase of 4 hectares of Chenin Blanc & Pineau d'Aunis vines.
Made from 100% Pineau d'Aunis, the brilliantly purple Patapon Rouge is evocative of wild strawberry, raspberry and rose geranium on the nose and palate. Dry and fresh with a savoury finish dusted with black pepper.
