Staff Pick Notes

Le Briseau is one of the founding figures of the Loire’s natural wine renaissance. In fact, they are credited with the first Pét-Nat bottled for the wine market. Pineau d'Aunis is one of two varietals (Chenin being the other) that you'll find on their estate and what you'll find in Patapon. They were one of the first vignerons to practice biodynamic farming and are non- interventionist winemakers. Patapon has dreamy aromas of strawberry compote and violets. The palate shows a mouthwatering acidity, red and black cherries, mild tannins and a touch of chocolate. Just awesome alongside a chunk of aged goat gouda.

There’s a lot to remember when it comes to the Loire. Novices, take note: Cabernet Franc is a great alternative to Cabernet Sauvignon, Muscadet is unparalleled as a companion to shellfish, and Cour Cheverny is the best white wine appellation you’ve never heard of. As diverse as Loire wines are, one day soon you'll know your Melon de Bourgogne from your Romorantin.
