Hirsute (Cabernet Franc, Merlot), Les Equilibristes, Vin du Périgord, France 2020
Regular price £14.95
Biodynamic/natural – terroir-driven – low/no added sulphites
We are delighted to be working with Francois de Monval and Florent Girou by bringing their exciting selection of wines to Scotland. Les Equilibristes is the brain child of this pair as they aim to produce one of a kind, quirky cuvees from small estates all across France. Most importantly, their central ideal is to fashion wines that possess the équilibre (‘balance’).
Each year, they visit their grower friends and purchase a select amount of grapes from which they produce terroirs-driven, organic cuvees that express a clear identity and sense of place. The results are simply stunning, as Florent (the winemaker) uses little to no added sulphites and other minimal intervention techniques to allow the grapes to truly speak for themselves.
