The story: Established in 1786, the estate has been built up over the last seven generations and now covers 37 acres. The vineyard is situated 5 kilometres North-East of Vouvray, in the vallée de Cousse. The diversity of our wine is due to the rich variety of soils (mostly clay and flint), the various sun exposures and the age of the vines. In 1987, François PINON, former child psychologist, took over the family estate from his father. Combining traditional techniques (such as short pruning, working the soil and low yields) with the latest technology, François emphasizes ecologically friendly vineyards and cellar practices. He works now with his son Julien, former city planner.

Why you’ll love me: Notes of apricots, lemon zest, and honeysuckle, ending with a smooth finish.
