About the Gaspard Wines

Gaspard is a house label for Jenny & François Selections. Jenny & François is one of our favorite importers of natural wines, especially from Europe. The grapes are sourced from a winemaker in the Loire Valley who makes the wines to the importer’s specifications. Jenny met a Parisian artist and asked her to create labels for this project. They put their heads together and came up with the name “Gaspard,” and a joyful label for lovely Loire Valley creations.

About Pineau d’Aunis

Pineau d’Aunis is a dark-skinned wine grape variety whose story began in the Loire Valley in the Middle Ages. Despite once being popular with royalty on both sides of the English Channel, the variety is now increasingly rare and is limited to a role in the rosés and light reds of the central Loire.

Pineau d’Aunis is valued for the gently peppery spiciness it brings to the area’s rosé wines, a role mirrored by the Carignan and Tibouren used to make the famous rosé wines of Provence. When the elements grant the Loire a vintage with warm weather more akin to that found in Provence, Pineau d’Aunis is also capable of producing distinctive and interesting red wines.

About Grolleau

Grolleau Noir is one of the Loire Valley’s workhorse grapes, used most often in the production of rosé wines under the Rosé d’Anjou AOC. The variety is deeply pigmented but lacks character and concentration, making it largely unsuited to red wine production. Consequently, it is not permitted in any of Loire’s red wine AOCs.

Behind Cabernet Franc and Gamay, Grolleau is one of the Loire’s most planted red-wine varieties, although plantings of the variety have been dropping steadily for the last 50 years. While Grolleau is high yielding, providing a steady, reliable harvest, it poses several challenges for growers as it is susceptible to disease and not a particularly flavorful variety.
