Interesting article by David Kermode:
Pineau d'Anuis

on the Pineau d'Aunis grape of the LoireVlly.
I've only had maybe 4-5 from the Loire & liked them quite a lot for a wine in the GlouGlou/Vin de Soif style of drinkable wines.
Not a profound wine, but danged tasty.
MattRorick/Forlorn-Hope has just released his first Pineau d'Aunis from his home vnyd in Murphys. Of that same style, it is quite good. Don't know of any other Pd'A from Calif (where is Bryan Harrington when you need him??)!!
