Vigneron: Jo Pithon et Joseph Paille

Pithon-Paille was created in 2008 by Isabelle and Jo Pithon along with Wendy and Joseph Paille. Combining over 60 years winemaking experience. They are negociants who also have a little land of their own which is certified Organic. Their wines are the most humbling and true expressions of Chenin Blanc I have tried.

Wine   White


Pithon-Paille, Savennieres, Loire

Variety;   Chenin Blanc  

13% ABV

Appellation Savennieres Controllee

This has an extremely smoky aroma with fennel and other herbal flavors and concentrated fruit aromas of apricots. Powerful and fullbodied on the palate this is a profound, very mineral, juicy, always smoky Chenin with a piquant acidity and a persistent saltiness, very well structured finish.


Wine   Red


Pithon-Paille, Anjou, Loire

Variety;   Cabernet Franc  

13% ABV

Appellation Anjou Controllee

La Fresnaye reveals a noble, intense and delicate bouquet of spicy/earthy dark berries, game, mushrooms, coffee and graphite. Aged for two years in barrels, this is a fresh, pure, powerful, firmly structured yet silky, elegant and vibrant red with a great intensity of fully ripe black berries intertwined with fading aromas of tobacco, cigars and graphite. Very good aging potential.

Wine   Dessert

4 VENTS (2011) - PAI4VT11

Pithon-Paille, Coteaux du Layon, Loire

Variety;   Chenin Blanc  

13% ABV

Appellation Coteaux de Layon Controllee

Côteaux du Layon ‘4 vents’ comes from 4 different plots in the heart of the Layon Valley. The Chenin grapes are harvested by selection of grapes that have developed partial botrytis. The yields are a minuscule 20 hl/ha. This is a gorgeous wine, with glazed fruits, pear and quince flavours and balanced by a racy, razor-sharp acidity.
