Grape Variety: Grenache, Carignan, Merlot
Producer: Olivier Cohen
Wild Scale: 4/5
Vegan friendly wine
Winemaking: Organic Grenache, Carignan and Merlot grapes were harvested by hand and fermented with indigenous yeast in stainless steel. Bottled with no filtration or fining and just a touch of sulphur.
This Wine: Natural wine with a full body and a developed fruit character of baked plum and blackcurrant. Although there is no use of oak, there is a leather-like aroma to the wine that has come from the ageing in bottle. Best served with hearth food dishes. This vintage was Olivier's first.
Notes on the Winemaker: Olivier Cohen took over the vineyards of Bernard Boubal in 2014 which make up just under 8 hectares in the Languedoc village of Argelliers. The land had already been worked organically which gave him a head start. Despite warmth of the region, the nights tend to be cool which retains freshness in Olivier's wines.
