Biodynamic/natural – terroir-driven – low/no added sulphites

Les Equilibristes

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.

Hirsute Rouge 2019

A refreshing blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot showing crunchy summer berry notes and gentle tannic structure.

Our favourite wine

After reading a great review of this wine we decided to try it out. Well, this is our new favourite wine, rich, fruity & very moreish. Will definitely be purchasing more bottles.

Brought a smile to my face

Don’t laugh but I saved this wine to drink at the end of the first lockdown: after four months with no haircut I was beginning to resemble the hirsute man on the label. When I finally pulled the cork I found just want I’d hoped for in terms of south of France summer sunshine abundant in ripe fruit and a fresh, clean finish. Great value and several repurchases to top up the stock in the rack for weekday treats are evidence of the smile this brings to my face every time I pull a cork!
