Soif d'Ailleurs, Fabien Jouves 2019 $24 This is a big friendly red and white field blend of Grenache Blanc/Gris/Rouge, Malbec, Cunoise, Cinsault, Clairette and Muscat de Hamburg all from biodynamic vineyards in the rugged hills of Cahors, where Fabien is hands down our favorite producer. The grapes where all pressed whole cluster and wild fermented in concrete tanks where it ages on the lees for 6 months before getting bottled unfiltered with just a little sulfur. Aromatic, juicy and fun. Definitely serve this one with a nice chill on it.
Hors Champs, Jean Baptiste Senat 2019 $22 This is a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah from 25-40 year old biodynamic vines in Minervois, where Jean-Baptiste and his wife Charlotte have been leading the natural wine charge for the last 25+ years. The grapes are fermented 60% whole cluster and pressed off to steel tanks , then bottled unfiltered with no sulfur added. Clean and precise with spiced dark fruit, but almost weightless with an easy drinking freshness and an unmistakable mineral core. Also serve this with slight chill, but maybe not as cold as the Jouves above.
