2016 L'absurde Génie des Fleurs 'Visator' Carignan Blend

Languedoc, France

Tom and partner Miha maintain a very small field with some old Carnigan vines, clay-calcium and cystic soil and biodynamic/homeopathic treatment. This beautiful light red is naturally fermented for 15 days with carbonic maceration. The Carignan itself has a small yield and fermentation continued for an extremely long time. The wine has a balanced taste and shows complex expressions in the mouth. Very easy to drink wine with great ageing potential, comes in at 12%.

About the maker

Tom Gautier and partner Miha, from a small farm in the south of France only began producing what they call their 'micro-production' in 2016.

When translated, the name of the wine is 'The Absurd Genius of Flowers' as without flowers there would be no grapes nor most life and no wine. The young duo follow strongly the principles of making wine with complete care for the state they leave the land in, farming biodynamically, no additions to the wine, no filteration and spontaneous fermentation. Their wines are challenging and mind-opening.
