Would you give up your career as a nuclear physicist to save one of France's greatest wine appellations from obscurity? Eric Texier did! In the mid-19th century, the northern Rhône wines of Brézème were rivaled only by those of Hermitage for reputation and delight -- but by 1961? Only one hectare remained! Eric gave up his life as an engineer and almost single handedly put the appellation back on the map. He farms biodynamically and makes this 100% Roussanne from vines planted in 1936! Bruised apple, melon, and soft floral notes around an oxidative character with bright acid still in the mix.
