Localization: Burgundy, France
Tasting Notes: This cuvée gives off myriad aromas like wild raspberry, cherry, violet and a hint of blood orange. Supremely balanced with an expressive nose of raspberry, rose petal and plum which flows onto the palate.
Notes: After the grapes are harvested by hand, they are sorted and macerated in concrete vats. Gentle stirring is carried out for 10 days with no additives. The maturation lasts for 15 months in barrels. This wine is very supple and elegant.
Food Pairing: Pairs perfectly with wild game terrine, rabbit in boujalais, duck a l'orange
The Domain: Marc Delienne learnt the viticultural trade at the Trévallon domain in Provence with Eloi Durrbach. In 2015, he purchased a property with 14 hectares in Fleurie, believing strongly in the region's potential for growth in fine wine. He set out to convert the domain to organic production, then to biodynamics in 2016. The domain has now been fully certified for 2 years. Since this wine makers first vintages, he has been making flavourful and balanced wines with delicate tannins and notes of red fruits and blueberry. One to watch in Beaujolais!

We would consider all wine to be "Natural". The term "Natural Wine" has the connotation of lacking a touch with nature. The winegrowers we champion are those who are farmers first. They seek to capture the uniqueness of the site (terroir) in the purest way possible. The product is as pure as possible and without wine-making flaws (brettanomyces, mercaptans, volatile acidity, etc.
Raw, in this case, we define as realistic and not manipulated. The winemakers use the least amount of intervention as possible. Wine should be made in the vineyard, not the cellar. The winemaker's job is to get the wine into the bottle in the purest form possible. There are additives that go into making wine, some are essential and some are not. Wines in this category do not have extra additives. They are free of added sulfur, or have the most minimal amounts possible in order to provide shelf stability for the consumer to experience the wine as the winemaker intended it to be.
