The 2020 Francois Dhumes Tete de Bulle Rosé Gamay d'Auvergne is an 100% Gamay d'Auvergne Petillant Naturel, direct pressed and slowly fermented in fiberglass before being transferred to bottle to finish ferment. Dryer than the last few years but still bursting with electric red fruit and vinous seriousness. After finishing his enology studies in Burgundy, Francois Dhumes spent five years working for a few traditional estates in the Rhone. During this experience, however, he realized the more he learned about conventional winemaking the less interested he became. He decided to move back to his native Auvergne, where he met winemakers like Vincent Tricot, Patrick Bouju, and Stephane Majeune. This became a springboard for Francois in developing a real understanding of how to work organically in the vineyard and ultimately make wine with no additions.

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.
