One of the widest selections of the web of authors' wines and craftsmen
Cuvée parcellaire, sur sol très calcaire.
Michel Gendrier travaille maintenant presque sans soufre sur ces rouges.
Jocelyne et Michel Gendrier valorisent le domaine familial en le conduisant en biodynamie et en produisant respectueuses du raisin -pas de levurage, pressurage doux. et peu de soufre (quasi pas de soufre libre dans les rouges).
Dégustation : la robe est grenat un peu sombre, bien translucide.Le nez est très fin, aérien, sur la cerise confite et son noyau, et de légères notes épicées et florales (pivoine). La bouche est ronde, ample, aérienne, avec une matière soyeuse quasi impalpable, et toujours ce duo cerise / noyau transfiguré par une fraîcheur semblant venir de nulle part. Cette dernière gagne encore en intensité en finale, souligné par une fine mâche crayeuse, avec une cerise triomphante et de l'écorce d'orange qui persiste longuement.

What is an author wine?
This can be so diverse depending on the personality of their sire, that it is easier to define what it is not. An author wine is anything but a standard, stereotypical wine, made to please as many people as possible. It is therefore rarely produced in millions of copies, copying itself from vintage in vintage.
An author wine is therefore a wine that does not look like that of the neighbor. Which from year to year will evolve according to the vagaries of the weather and the mood of the author - the two that can be linked. Because the author does not rely on market studies to carry out his boat. He makes his wine as he feels, as he likes, as he can, sometimes ... and too bad if he does not please everyone.
This is why author wines are sometimes classified as "table wine" or "France wine". Because the winemaker did not plan the authorized grape variety*, makes the assembly or vinification recommended in the name **. He is often a bit rebellious, our author. But that is why we like it! ... That said, author's wines are not systematically marginal: they are present in most of the appellations, and can be part of the elite of these this***. Because they are not content to have personality: they are good, in addition! With in general aDegree of TorchabilityVery high: we never tire of it at the end of the first sip.
As author's wines are not chaptalized, levied, hacked ... They can have very different profiles depending on the vintage. It is up to us (resellers and consumers) to accept them as they are, and to remain faithful to the producers, because they need us to continue their activity.
