Laurent is an incredibly talented former chef come natural winemaker. Obsessive observation & constant care are his highest priorities in the vineyard, where everything is done by hand & without the use of chemical sprays. These wines are fine, precise and utterly delicious. The type of natural wine that will age beautifully - if you are more patient than us!

Gamay & Grolleau, Loire Valley, France | Everybody’s favourite cuties Gamay & Grolleau (two best friends, scrappy & mischievious, always up to no good but when they flash you a charming grin you’re putty in their hands so they get away with everything) makes you feel like you just walked into a tiny, mind-blowingly chic & off the beaten path Parisian wine bar. This is quintessential glou glou: notably fresh handful of Haribo gummi bears countered by a pleasant hit of post-rain April dirt. Lightly musky like when a hot person at the gym’s sweat smells weirdly good, tart raspberry from semi-carbonic maceration, mini Coffee Crisp on Hallowe’en night, agua fresca, cracked black pepper. Kick back with a glass after splurging on something really frivolous i.e. a wildly overpriced designer chess set even though you’ve never played chess in your life.

Grenache, Syrah, Loire Valley, France | Exciting new discoveries are often unexpected & unplanned. Laurent is an incredibly talented former chef come natural winemaker. A rare prize, in both maker and outcome, a one-time delicious project, directly a result of climate change, intuition & ingenuity. This cuvée, a collaboration brought on by a devastating frost in his vineyard that forced him to source organic fruit for the first time, was originally going to be 100% Syrah from Laurent’s friend’s vineyard in Vaucluse, but in the eleventh hour it was blended with beautifully spiced Grenache from Gard, in Southern France. The grapes were destemmed and fermented on skins for five days for this gently tannic cherub. Ruby tinted, tasting like throwing raspberries into your friend’s mouth from across the room, herby mortar and pestle leftovers & cooking down the frozen summer plums you saved (good job wee squirrel). Pour alongside your hopes, your dreams & your determination to make them all come true whatever obstacles you face along the way.
