Le Petit Bouchon Sans Sulfites Bordeaux 2019

Description

A 100% natural Merlot from a young and dynamic winemaker, Florian Bouchon.

From the Château Ferreyres vineyards, grapes are manually sorted before undergoing cool fermentation over 3 weeks, followed by 4 months maturation in steel with particular attention paid to protecting against oxygenation.

Deep red in colour with purplish hues, the nose is marked by sweet, plummy fruit with hints of wild flowers and herbal characters. To drink, this is wonderfully fresh and vibrant, ripe cherries and raspberries pop in the mouth, with tangy rhubarb and mulberry, grippy tannins and a quenching acidity keeping it clean and crisp and mouthwatering on the finish. You can even dunk this in the fridge for half an hour for extra freshness.

Producer: Le Petit Bouchon

Le Petit Bouchon (the small cork) is a range of natural wines from Florian Bouchon, a young and dynamic winemaker tending the 42 hectare Château Ferreyres on the high plateau of the village of Le Puch in Entre-deux-Mers. The soil is clay-limestone with an unusually high proportion of flint, a feature that allows the heat of the sun to be returned at night to the vines, accelerating the ripening process of the grapes during summer.

Florian has produced three wines so far, a red, a white and a rosé, the red classified Bordeaux AOC, the white and rosé classified Vin de France as although the wines follow all the rules of Bordeaux they are quite different in style to traditional examples.

"I work meticulously to create wines of unique taste, of silky tannin. Above all, tasting them means to live a pleasant moment. Proudly attached to the value and history of my terroir, I have chosen methods that preserve the beauty and balance of the vineyard". Salut, Florian!
