Chenin Blanc - Pineau D’aunis '18

Côme Isambert is a small winery that started in 2013. After 12 years in the wine sector and organic field, Côme decided to launch his own winery with a focus on quality and small production of 6,000 bottles a year. 

His philosophy focuses on producing wine and cider that reflects the diversity and richness of Loire Valley's terroirs. The goal was to enhance, through different vintages, the complementarity aspects of grape varieties such as Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Franc, Grolleau Noir, Grolleau Gris, Gamay. Côme makes a point to honour and respect the natural winemaking process and the diversity of natural environments.

He rents a massive cave underneath an old castle to make his wines, which was previously used for growing mushrooms – something Saumur is famous for (they even have a mushroom museum!). Côme lets the grapes ferment on their natural yeasts in fibreglass tanks, and then the wines age in tank or old barrels, depending on the grape/cuvée. There is no fining or filtration and no additives are used.

Description: Truly a positive surprise - fruity, elegant, perfectly integrated acidity, exotic fruits on the palate - extremely drinkable. Côme expected to make a rose with the Aunis but the pressing just gave a white juice. Together there is a really beautiful symbiosis of these two classic Loire varietals.
