This Wine: A unique cuvée that utilises some hybrid grapes that we have never heard of before! Natural red wine that with a fresh and wild character. There is an uplifting hint of spritz on opening followed by dark and vibrant fruit flavours. A versatile wine for pairing with food.
Notes on the Winemaker: Sophie and Lillian Bauchet are natural winemakers located in Lancie, just south of the village of Fleurie in Beaujolais. They specialise in growing hybrid grape varieties that are more resistant to disease in the vineyard. This means less spraying of the vines which in turn leads to healthier soil. The couple are here to prove that these varieties can make wines just as interesting as those from more established names.
