Deboutbertin Aunis Etoile 2018
Pineau d’aunis is one of the unsung heroes of the region, an underrated grape greatly appreciated by Stéphanie Debout and Vincent Bertin. Whole bunches are crushed by foot in an open vat and macerate 8 to 15 days, the juice is slowly and gently extracted using a manual basket press and the wine ages for a shade longer than a year on its lees. The wine offers a floral and fresh nose, a round mouthfeel with ripe strawberries and pink peppercorn flavours, and is a characterful pineau d’aunis with depth and grip. No filtration or additions.
