Jean-Pierre farms a total of seven hectares of land across two appellations, Jasnières and the Coteaux-du-Loir. The vines are planted over a mix of red clay, limestone and silex and are tended organically, with the majority of treatments coming in the form of infusions of wild plants such as nettles and ferns. Parcels are harvested by hand individually and fermentations take place in the labyrinth of ancient limestone caves beneath the vines.

A remarkable wine, from a historic vineyard for Pineau d’Aunis where the vines are over a hundred years of age. This was fermented on skins for three weeks, before fifteen months of élevage in old barriques. A wine of rare depth and complexity, it possesses a tightrope balance and will reward drinkers for decades to come.
