Returning home – to the Sarthe, in the Jasnières/Coteaux-du-Loir appellation – Jean-Pierre Robinot created the Les Vignes de l'Ange Vin estate: whites (Chenin) and reds (Pineau d'Aunis) that are, much like the winegrower, "free" wines, inhabited by the spirit of the place.
A fiery figure of natural wine – he is notably an eminent member of SAINS, the association of wines without any input or (added) sulphites –, Jean-Pierre Robinot has taken the steps that led him from his native village of Sarthe to a wine bistro in Paris in the 80s and 90s, then on his return to Chahaignes to create an estate in the Jasnières/Coteaux-du-Loir appellation area, which saw its first vintage in 2002. He farms fifteen hectares of vines on the hillsides overlooking the Loir Valley – with flint clay soils and clay-limestone soils – according to the most uncompromising organic farming practices. Chenin and Pineau d'Aunis, two great Loire grape varieties, reign supreme here in cuvées produced as naturally as possible before aging in barrels in a cool cellar dug into the tuffeau.
