2016 Anne et Jean-François Ganevat - Le P’tiot Roukin Vin de France Rouge (90 pts) ℹ️ This wine is a Vin de France, and the Cuvée changes significantly based on the year. Some years it a multi-regional blend of grapes from Gamay, Syrah, or ancient indigenous varieties preserved by his father but banned in the appellation guidelines. 2016 is a blend of Pinot Noir, Poulsard, and Trousseau from a 70-year old vineyard planted on marl and limestone. Biodynamically, hand-harvested, and fermented with indigenous yeasts. Semi-carbonic maceration for 10 months in a conical wood tank. This wine is bottled unfined, unfiltered, and without the addition of Sulfur. 👁 Pale ruby color. 👃 Medium+ intensity on the nose. Aromas of ripe red cherry, cranberry, red currant, bay leaf, and earthy. 👄 The wine is dry, medium+ acidity, low soft tannins, medium alcohol (12.5%), and medium- body. A medium+ length finish of crunchy red fruit and bay leaf that is surprisingly long. 🔔 This wine is an avant-garde example of what VdF and natural wine could and should taste like in the right hands. The color is hypnotizing. In the glass, this is not flashy, but pure crunchy red fruit that lingers on the palate with a slight herbal and earthiness for added complexity. There is a "low sulfur" aroma that comes across like beer foam on the nose but blows off with air. It definitely feels like a glou glou wine to me. A joy to drink, but don't overthink it. 💰 ~$33 #vin #lovewine #🍷 #wineterroir #wine #naturalwine #naturalwines #ganevat #jeanfrancoisganevat #vindefrance #biodynamicwine #biodynamicfarming #vdf #nosulfates #vinrouge
