Jonathan Maunoury Popopop!
Grapes: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon
Jonathan Maunoury's Anjou vineyards sit on the local limestone 'tuffeau' subsoil. The vines had been farmed organically for 20 years and Jonathan started working biodynamically in 2017. Most of his plantings are Cabernet Franc and he has a little Chardonnay and Pineau d'Aunis. He harvests by hand, ferments with natural yeasts and doesn't fine or filter. His goal is to make genuine wines that are as natural as possible with as little intervention as possible.
Popopop! is Jonathan's pet nat made from 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, it's juicy and creamy with ripe red fruit, a slight leafiness and zippy acidity.
