Wines from Vin de France

Padié Vin de France Fleur de Cailloux 2014

Grenache Gris, Macabeu, Grenache Blanc
The name means "flower of the stones" and that's just what this fabulous natural wine represents, a vivid, exquisite expression of the stony soils it's born from. Jean-Philippe Padié is perhaps the most playful and possesses the lightest touch of the gang of 5 producers in Calce who work biodynamic and (mostly) sans sulfites to produce some of the finest wines of Southern France. This is a blend of the three fine native grapes that offers complexity to he who seeks complexity but ready refreshment to the rest of us! The Mediterranean fruit and energy is awesome for just 11.90% alcohol. 35 mg/L SO2 Tot. This really is drinking the vines!

Padié Vin de France Milouise 2014

Grenache Gris, Macabeu, Grenache Blanc
The Cuvée name comes from Jean-Philippe's grand-parents Milou and Louise. A brilliant follow up to the one off 5+5 as it turns out, this Grenache Gris dominant, foudre made and aged wine made from very low yielding old biodynamically farmed vines is simply awesome. It possesses a mere 12.16% alcohol and 29 mg/L SO2 Tot, brilliant acidity but is also extraordinarily intense, rich and complex. It perfectly represents Jean-Philippe Padié's craft to produce perhaps the most playful wines of the 5 well-known producers based out of Calce. The third eye on the label seems highly appropriate!

Padié Vin de France Petit Taureau 2014

Carignan, Syrah
Schist and chalk, light and dark (vines facing east and west), yin and yang (Carignan and Syrah), this wine is a Petit Taureau, a bull, but a gentle little one! Made from biodynamically farmed vines without sulfites by Jean-Philippe Padié who is perhaps the most playful and possesses the lightest touch of the 5 producers who work out of Calce to produce some of the finest natural wines of Southern France. Like the Fleur de Cailloux, this gorgeous, soft, gentle red is a brilliant expression of the stony soils it's born from, with subtle complexity, cool freshness and fantastic Mediterranean fruit and energy. Just 12.81% alcohol and 12 mg/L SO2 Tot.
