After a stint working for natural wine superstar Frederick Cossard in Burgundy, Duchene set himself up on the unforgiving, rugged seaside slopes of Banyuls to make elegant, sensual reds from his four old vine blocks. .

But this wine is about more than just Duchene! It's a really interesting bottling that he makes from grapes from his Pascole vineyard and with the contribution of grapes from winemaker Nico Carmarans, who provides half of the blend.

Camarans is based in Aveyron in France's south-west who grows the rare grape Fer Servadou, which bolsters the power of this bottling. Like Duchene, Camarans avoids all additions in his wine and practices organic viticulture. They're good mates and this is a really great, extremely rare bottling, bottled only in magnum with only 300 sold worldwide.
