Producer & Viticulture
Philippe’s wines go beyond organic: practicing ‘Cosmoculture’, a mixture of organic and biodynmaic principles alongside ancient beliefs originating to Aboriginal and Native American times. Along side this, the winery is built on an acient Roman spring so also benefits from the use of telluric energy (a form of discreet, electrical currents low in frequency that sweep through the earth’s mantle and crust as a result of natural and human causes) which is believed to energise the vineyard. This is one of the ways they choose to farm, all with the ideaology that their practice allow the vines to draw on their natural defences and rearranging the magnetic field of the winery all to benefit the plants.
The wine is a classic southern Rhone GSM blend from various plots of the winery. Fermented with indigineous yeasts spontaneousy in concrete. Wine then spends 24 months in concrete vats meaning that there is no oak during any of the process. This helps to keep the fruit fresh. Unfined and unfiltered with less that 15 mg/l of sulphur. Nothing is added or taken away.
A powerful wine with rich, sliky tannins and a suprising freshness. Wonderfully ripe dark and red fruits, violet, lavender and liquorice. Concentrated, pure and elegant.
Pair with BBQ food, grilled and rich meats, mature cheeses and world cuisines.
