100% Côt. 40% whole bunch, short maceration in fibreglass, then aged in old barrels for 12 months. Zero SO2.

Bert, Nicole and their family moved to the Loire, and began working in the vineyards in 2017. Bruno helped them along the way, and 2018 was their first solo vintage. They continue to work as Bruno did – as naturally as possible. This means biodynamic farming, and hands off in the cellar. The wines are fermented spontaneously with their indigenous yeasts, which is often long and slow due to the cold cellar conditions. No additives are used, including SO2 at any stage. There is no fining or filtration, and the wines are bottled by gravity. These are the truest of natural wines that are alive in every sense, and are a direct representation of the terroir and the year that was.

Little dark berries with big juicy aromas and an element of iron. Big full mid palate, with layers and layers of flavours that unfold and reveal themselves over time. Charcoal, deep black minerals, blackberry and dark chocolate. I love the length here - and the acidity which is perfectly integrated and ever so slightly tart. For a bigger wine it's still so fresh, with a very lively vibe. This is a food wine, one to watch over a few hours while sharing a winter feast. A great wine to age as well.

FAQ

What is natural wine?

The philosophy of natural wine is one of minimal-intervention, from vineyard to cellar. Natural wines are made using quality grapes, generally grown using organic and biodynamic practices, however vineyards may not always be certified as such due to the restrictive nature of these certification systems. Natural wines in most cases won't be filtered or fined, processes which generally involve the use of animal products.

Are your wines vegan friendly?

In almost all cases yes! Generally if you see "unfiltered and unfined" this will be an assurance that no animal products have been used in the process. The fining process is where conventional winemakers will often use egg and fish products (yep pretty gross) to remove sediment from wines. The sediment is natural, healthy and adds flavour so natural wine makers almost always leave some of it in.

Are your wines chemical free?

In most cases yes, natural wines generally use grapes grown using biodynamic or organic farming methods and will have none of the over 200 additives that can be found in conventional wines, with the occasional exception of a tiny amount of sulphur. Some natural winemakers choose to add a small amount of sulphur (SO2) to ensure their wines are less volatile, while a lot of natural winemakers believe strongly against this.
