Inspired by the delicious, quaffable wines drank while playing ptanque with friends on sunny afternoons in France, we are excited to introduce Cochonnet! Sourced from growers we have worked with for years, Cochonnet is made with all organic or biodynamic grapes, fermented with native yeasts, and bottled in a 1L with a screw cap for a great price so you can drink it all day long.
Cochonnet Gamay is sourced from younger vine Gamay on granitic sand soils. The grapes are all harvested is by hand, only indigenous yeasts are used, and the wine undergoes a classic, partial whole-cluster fermentation with levage in cement for 8 months, yielding a bright, peppery rendition of Gamay perfect with a chill. The wine is very aromatic, displaying lively notes of red fruits, white pepper, with a juicy mouthfeel with plenty of zest and energy. 13% ABV
