About the Wine
100% Pineau d’Aunis, this is quite a different take on French rose, it’s a slightly more savoury, natty take on the fruity and lean classic provincial style.
Direct pressed, Laurent chose a different approach with this wine, and boy oh boy, what a result. Just so fresh yet jam-packed full of flavour. Stone fruit, tart red things, and an ethereal light juicy character that makes it absolutely mouth-watering.
It's unfined and unfiltered, so there will be some harmless sediment in the bottle.
About Laurent Saillard
Beginning his wine like as a restaurateur, Laurent Saillard developed a love and appreciation for natural wines working in New York.
Returning to France he found himself in the Touraine sub-region of the Loire Valley. Working with Didier Barouillet & Catherine Roussel of the Clos Roche Blanche winery, he learned the art of lo-fi winemaking.
From 2012 he started his own project taking over a parcel of their vineyards, and in 2020 released his first Negoce wines, with organic fruit sourced from outside vineyards.
He makes pure, expressive wines of great joy.
