Buckwild red-white blend from a legendary winemaker

Known for his rigorous approach in the vineyard, Desplats doesn’t plow or use sulphur or copper, instead cultivating a polyculture of herbs, flowers, grains and trees across his 6 hectares to exist alongside a paltry 1.6 hectares of vines, which are also cultivated without gas or power.

Toschi cherries, raw cocoa, powdered granite with a slight effervescence that when faded, explores more savoury, herbal territory, the inside of a cobbler’s workspace, leather and freshly cut wood. Electric, prismatic and built Ford tough, this feels like it was delivered by a breathless emissary on horseback, pure Narnia juice from the Wicked Witch herself.
