A fresh shipment of wines from Tassie based Natural wine importers, Living Wines, has arrived. The notes below are provided by them:
This wine is made from purchased grapes but, as with everything they make, it is a sensational wine. They have sourced a variety of grapes from around France including Clairette from the Drôme, Riesling and Pinot Blanc from Alsace, Aligoté from their own vineyards, Chardonnay from the Ardeche and Sauvignon Gris from just north of Roanne!
This wine is made by Alice and Olivier de Moor but, due to the severe frosts and hail over the past three or four years, they have had to resort to purchasing fruit for this cuvee in order to survive. The rules in France stipulate if you purchase fruit from other producers to make wine, you must do so through a different company, hence the name. The fruit is grown by their friends who also farm organically and biodynamically.
