2016 Tuffo, Damien Pinon, Loire Valley, France, Vouvray AOC
Michel and Damien are the third generation of winemakers at the head of this family estate of more or less 25Ha. The estate is located in Vernou sur Brenne. All their wines are vinified and preserved in the cellar dug in the tufa.
The clay-calcareous soil allows them to elaborate rich and balanced wines. The average age of the vineyard is 25 to 30 years and is partly renewed each year, but they also cultivate some parcels of old vines that allow them to obtain more complex wines. Every day, Michel and Damien apply their expertise from the grape to the wine, combining traditional and modern techniques to always improve the quality of their wines.
