About Domaine Les Grandes Vignes Pineau d’Aunis

Domaine Les Grandes Vignes – Since the XVII century, located in the village of Thouarce in Anjou, the Vaillant family has passed on farmland from generation to generation. For the last ten years, sisters and brothers have cultivated the estate using biodynamic principles. The goal is to express the personality of each wine.

​55ha of vines of Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Franc, Grolleau, and Pineau d’Aunis are planted. The diversity of their cuvées is due to the different types of soils and exposure found: schist sandstone, quartz, gravel, and clay. Almost all of their wines are made with no addition of SO2, neither filtered nor fined.

About Pineau d’Aunis

Pineau d’Aunis, sometimes called Chenin Noir although unrelated to Chenin Blanc, is a historic Touraine variety making light red wines once sought by the kings of both France and England according to Pierre Galet. France’s total plantings, 442 ha/1,091 acres in 2011, have remained steady and are concentrated around Tours in the Loire Valley. The variety is one of the many sanctioned for the red and rosé appellations of Touraine and Anjou but is used only to a limited extent, mainly to bring peppery liveliness and fruit to rosés, although in ripe years it can yield a fine red.
