An audacious and soulful Cab Franc for the ages! The late Anne-Claude Leflaive was a legend in Puligny-Montrachet, on a quest to support young, biodynamic winemakers across France until she came across this abandoned winery in Anjou, full of old vines with untapped potential.

The late Anne-Claude Leflaive was a legend in Puligny-Montrachet, on a quest to support young, biodynamic winemakers across France until she came across this abandoned winery in Anjou, full of old vines with untapped potential. Along with her husband, Christian Jacques, she purchased the estate and hired Sylvain Potin as head winemaker, entrusting him to bring her vision of vibrant, biodynamic reds to life. From 45-year-old vines, the destemmed grapes were fermented for a month, aged in a combination of used Burgundy casks, steel vat and new oak for 18 months, and bottled without fining or filtration. Chiselled & heady, piquant in profile and personality and fruited like a backpack of smushed cherries and blueberries. Bell pepper, brown leather, dirty cobblestone, savoury-smoky-spicy tannins & the smell of grinding a pencil with those old-school wall sharpeners. Pair with kitchen sink stews and scratch lotto tickets.

We don't know if you've heard this, but Canada is a truly WILD place to import wine. Each province is it's own country with super strict rules. For ages, so much of the very best natural wine never made it into the province. That is changing in such an exciting way. We started our own import company to bring you some of our very favourite wines from around the world at the sharpest prices - this allows us to travel, fall in love with a wine, and bring right to your doorstep without a middle person. Put simply, as the importer, we shave one layer off the supply chain. We offer these sweet wholesale discounts when you bundle. From 1, 3 to 6 packs you'll find serious savings. The GWI sticker - Grape Witch Imports - means not only that we strongly stand behind the producer, it also means you won't find a better deal anywhere else in town. It also allows us to source many wines just for the shop - you'll find Ontario exclusives marked GWIE - Grape Witch Import Exclusive.
