Domaine François et Julien Pinon Non-Dosé Vouvray Brut is a sparkling wine from the Loire Valley region of France. The grapes used for this wine are Chenin Blanc, which are sourced from vineyards on the right bank of the Loire River. The wine is made in the méthode traditionnelle, where the second fermentation occurs in the bottle. It is left non-dosé, meaning that no additional sugar is added after disgorgement. This results in a dry, crisp and mineral-driven wine with a bright acidity and aromas of apple, pear, and white flowers. It is an excellent example of a high-quality sparkling wine from the Vouvray appellation.
