Jean-Pierre Robinot Les Années Folles 2021
Les Années Folles is one of Robinot's famously delicious petillants, a looser style of sparkler that starts its fermentation in tank and finishes in bottle under the closure of the crown cap. This is made from a direct press of Pineau d’Aunis that began fermentation in cuve, spent ten months on lees in bottle and was disgorged by hand. A beautiful pale shade of pink in the glass, the wine’s delicate bubbles carry varietal notes of wild strawberry and white pepper. A sublime example of the genre. Absolutely no additions at any point in the process from vine to bottle - a truly natural wine from an infamous producer. Get acquainted.
