Cette cuvée est un vin liquoreux issu de raisins vendangés à la main le 12 décembre 2017. En attendant leur vendange tardive, les raisins se déshydratent, concentrant ainsi leur sucre – 263 g/litre de sucre résiduel – pour donner, après une vinification délicate, un vin très dense, liquoreux, presque sirupeux.

L’Excuse est un dessert à lui tout seul. On le déguste accompagné d’une salade de fruits frais et de petits gâteaux secs ou de bugnes. Pas trop sucrées, ces gourmandises dorées et soufflées n’empiètent pas sur le sucre du vin qui prend alors toute sa dimension. On peut aussi l’apprécier avec des fromages de brebis basques très secs comme l’ossau- iraty. Sa saveur sucrée maquille le piquant du fromage et remplace avantageusement la confiture de cerise noire qui l’accompagne traditionnellement, précisément pour en adoucir le goût.

Déboucher entre amis une bouteille de ce vin insolite est un moment exceptionnel d’intimité et de plaisir partagé !

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.


* For example, theTouriga Nacionalin the Minervois, or theSyrahIn Forez ribs. They are crazy, these authors!

** Some winegrowers dare to produceSweety with Mourvèdre or oneNatural sparkling with Pineau d'Aunis

*** Like those of Jean-François Ganevat in the Jura or Zind-Humbercht in Alsace
