The only winemaker who can plausibly say, “C’mon, it’s not like winemaking’s nuclear physics!” is Eric Texier... the ex-nuclear physicist turned natural winemaking hero. is one of the most fascinating minds in wine. Predominantly Grenache, with small amounts of Syrah, Carignane and Cinsault, from 40-year-old biodynamically farmed vines.

You can treat this like a baby Chateauneuf, with all the ageability implied therein... but boy do we like drinking these now!
