From old vineyards in the very north of the Loire Valley, Jean-Pierre Robinot crafts Chenin Blancs that are true vin de garde, wines that can take over a decade to show their true colours. Having had plenty of time to rest in both the cellar and bottle, this is a wine of real delicacy and finesse, with just a hint of orchard fruits remaining, it is dominated by a lingering minerality which coats a finish that seems to go on forever.

Jean-Pierre Robinot

There’s nothing we can say about Jean-Pierre Robinot that hasn’t been said before. He’s a guy who has been at the forefront of the scene for decades, opening a seminal bistrot in Paris, starting a journal on natural wines and finally moving back to the village where he grew up in the very north of the Loire Valley to produce kaleidoscopic takes on Chenin Blanc and Pineau d’Aunis that are amongst our favourite wines on earth.
