Pineau D'Aunis from Brazilier and Ser Cabernet Pfeffer

    My first try with the rare Pineau d'Aunis grape. A white pepper nose, some subdued and slightly sour fruit, in a most pleasant way. It has a soft touch, no big tannins and not too acidic end. My wife didn't care for it that much, but I really enjoyed it. A great lighter summer table wine. (89 pts.)

    Damn. This wine blew my mind. It was the second bottle of the night, so tasting note capabilities were impaired already, but this thing just hit every spot right. It had a magical, fruity nose, a perfect balance between everything, acid and tannins. Not too leathery, not too tobacco-y, not stewed, still fresh. But with girth and confidence. Felt like a great old school Cabernet Sauvignon, without a lot of oak. I've had a few wines made from the rare Cabernet Pfeffer-grape and I can honestly say they've all been great. Is this the most underrated grape ever? I'm starting to think so. (94 pts.)
