2015 Le Petit Domaine de Gimios Rouge de Causse, 750ml

Availability: In stock (1)

A truly adventurous wine from the Languedoc-Roussillon. In a Demeter-certified biodynamic vineyard grows an array of southern French varietals, including some that are nearly extinct in modern viticulture. The grapes are untrained by wires and are selected from the haphazard bushes by the winemakers. The various varieties fermented together and bottled without ever adding sulfur.

From the mouth of the importer (Camille Rivière Selection):

"There are at least sixteen different grape varieties planted in this place. But they are randomly planted. There might be a Carignan vine and then two Cinsault vines, followed by an Aramon and then a couple of Grenache. And the vineyard also contains Oeillade, Terret Rose, Terret Noir, Terret Blanc, Syrah, Muscat and Alicante. The grapes are co-fermented to produce this amazing soft, round, subtle red with layers that seems to go on forever. This year approximately 30% of the grapes that made this unique wine were of the Carignan variety."
