Grape Varietal(s): Grolleau Noir and Pineau d'Aunis
How It Drinks:
Winemaking Style:

This coferment of Grolleau Noir and Pineau d'Aunis is supremely thirst quenching - or, as the French would say - a vin de soif. Bursting with juicy red and black wild berries, tart cranberry and cherry, and finely spiced acidity with light but not absent tannins. At 10% alcohol this goes down a bit too easy! Drink on a sunny afternoon or at alfresco dinner with friends. 

Jean-Christophe Garner is based in St Lambert-du-Lattray, 11 km due south of Savennières, on the south side of the Layon River; a town technically in the AOP Coteaux du Layon. Originally from Brittany, J-C worked as a sommelier and naturally became captivated with fine wine. Ultimately, he migrated into wine production. He had a stage with Marc Angeli, who helped him get settled in the region. When several small plots in Anjou became available, he grabbed them - predominantly Chenin, with smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc, Grolleau, Gamay and Pineau d’Aunis.
