2019 L'Alezan VDF 'Potion' Carignan

Ardèche, France

Made with beautiful Carignan from 45 year old vines grown on clay and limestone. The grapes spend 15 days as whole bunches before being aged in old foudres. The name of the wine was created after Patricia and Rémi were finding immense energy by drinking the wine during COVID lockdowns lol.  'Darker in colour. Smells so French! Very clean and powerful, but quite expressive. Dark berries and rocks. Big energy. Some olives and wild dark herbs. Wild berries and bracken. Nicely balanced combination of acidity, tannin and tension. Textural vibration.' Ryan Larkin.

About the maker

Patricia and Rémi Bonneton are fairly new on the natural wine scene in France. Based in Ardèche, they have a tiny domaine that they are slowly growing, and also operate as a negoce.

Their vineyards are on the super steep hills of the Doux Valley in northern Ardèche, in the most dramatic and rugged of settings. Everything is done by hand and horse, and it is often a battle against the wild - things like hungry boar and deer, relentless hail, and even forest fires which came extremely close to their vineyards. Life here is not easy, but the hard work pays off and shows in the quality of their wines. Notes thanks to Ryan Larkin.
