Pat Desplats

Pat was once part of Les Griottes with Babass Dervieux. After years of collaboration they decided to go their separate ways and make their own wines from their own vineyards. Pat was left with some Chenin Blanc, Pinot d'Aunis, Gamay, Grolleau and Sauvignon Blanc. For those that remember the wines of Les Griottes it is amazing to taste the result of their separate enterprises. Pat's new wines have a very different focus and tension whilst retaining the same wild spirit of Les Griottes.
