Overview

Maison Gazeau-Baldi’s Coteaux du Loire is a harmonious blend that showcases the unique terroir of La Male Perdrix, a parcel facing west on stony soils of flint clays and tufa subsoil. Comprising 80% Pineau d’Aunis and 20% Côt, this wine embodies a beautiful cohabitation between two grape varieties and two generations of vines, with an impressive age range spanning 70 years for Pineau d’Aunis and 5 years for Côt. The vineyard management is certified organic and biodynamic, reflecting a commitment to sustainable practices. The grapes are harvested manually from vines with a planting density of 6,000 per hectare and are meticulously vinified through maceration of Aunis in whole bunches, accompanied by a direct pressing of Côt. The resulting wine unveils a spicy and fruity nose, adorned with notes of fresh roses. In the mouth, it exudes suppleness, minerality, light tannins, and an enduring length.
