Advocates of the principles of organic and biodynamic agriculture, the Viret family has chosen to employ a particular form of natural viticulture throughout their estate. Known as “cosmoculture”, this is based on energy fields. Everything is organized in such a way that both the vines and wines are able draw on their own natural defences. The work in the vineyards focuses on reorganizing the magnetic field and on the application of homeopathic and naturals preparations made from rocks and plants that are often found naturally within the vineyard.
This is one of the most exciting raw and natural wines ever produced. Un-fined. Unfiltered. Low sulphites. It's a beautiful, powerful blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, aged in concrete for 24 months, to preserve the natural fruit flavours. This blend shows powerful, ripe dark fruit, leather, black olives and an array of herbs and spices that linger well into the finish.
This can easily be enjoyed on its own, but will just as well accompany hearty stews, game & well-seasoned grilled meat or vegetables.
