Tasting Notes

100% Cabernet Franc, biodynamically farmed in soils rich in clay and limestone. Gently extracted to draw out soft, smooth tannins. Fermented in tank and then aged in old French oak. The wine has a beautiful array of red and blue fruits on the nose and structure on the palate.

Jo Pithon first started producing wines in the Anjou region in the Loire in 1978, using fully organic and biodynamic viticulture - something that was completely unheard of back then!

Over the years he refined his techniques, both in the vineyard and the winery, and started to garner international attention for his vibrant and vital wines, picking up the Grower of the Year award from the prestigious Revue des Vins de France. The Pithon-Paillé label was launched in 2008, when Jo partnered with Joseph Paillé.

The jewel in the Pithon-Paillé crown is the monopole vineyard Coteau des Treilles, a steeply graded plot in Beaulieu-Sur-Layon that had been abandoned since World War 2. Jo spent many years acquiring all of the separate plots to unite the vineyard under one ownership. He restored and replanted the site in 2000.

In 2018, looking to retirement, Jo sold his business to wine entrepreneur, Ivan Massonnat. Ivan and Jo have partnered together with a common goal - to make wines that become the reference for Chenin Blanc globally, and showcase the incredible Coteau des Treilles site. Jo will remain the winemaker for the next few years to ensure a smooth transition.
