Les Vignerons d'Estezargues
Côtes du Rhône, France
Unfiltered and juicy with a soft, slightly cloudy purple colour and gentle flavours of blackberry, liquorice, pepper and nutmeg.
While France's co-ops have struggled selling mass produced wine, the cave co-operative in Estezargues have done it right. Using an artisanal approach, this is wine made in a hands off, natural way - conscientiously farmed, and fermented with wild yeasts, and vinified without enzymes, new oak or SO2 before bottling.
