Bois de Boursan Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2012
If you want old school finesse and terroir purity, this is the wine! It stands apart from the crowd having never veered away from traditional methods. It comes from some of the oldest vines of the Appellation organically farmed on a mosaic of different soils. This, along with whole bunch fermentation and long ageing in old foudres, are the key to the natural freshness, beauty and complexity of this wine. Will age gracefully for 30 years or more.
Bois de Boursan Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc 2014
This white is a treasure of old school finesse and terroir purity! Quite different from the many modern white Châteauneuf-du-Papes (or single varietal wines), it achieves this as a result of having never veered away from traditional methods. It's a classic blend of both grape varieties and soils, thus natural complexity and issues from old vines farmed organically. The winemaking is simple, with a light touch, non-interventionist, made and aged in enamel tank for the fruit to express itself clearly. Great freshness and finesse.
Padié Vin de France Petit Taureau 2010
Natural wine. Sans soufre. Biodynamic vines. Complex, mineral energy. Just 13.5%. Made gently by whole bunch, semi carbonic maceration in concrete. By former caviste of Gauby.
Padié Vin de France Fleur de Cailloux 2014
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!
Papa Provençal Vin de France La Cuvée Rouge 2014
This is our own original blend. Made by us... for you! I make it with the assistance of my "Papa Provençal", former vigneron of Domaine de Cassan, and a local winemaker consultant who works with 25 local estates in the Ventoux and Beaumes de Venise and who knows just where to source the best wines to blend to my style. Fruit, freshness and finesse are the pre-requisites; I look for the opposite of people's image of heavy, dense, sweet wines from the Rhône. The red is always light but aromatic with perfumed red fruits. It comes from old vines in the Ventoux, farmed basically organically and made and aged traditionally in concrete tank.
Papa Provençal Vin de France Cuvee V by James Blanc 2015
This is our own original blend. Made by us... for you! I make it with the assistance of my "Papa Provençal", former vigneron of Domaine de Cassan, and a local winemaker consultant who works with 25 local estates in the Ventoux and Beaumes de Venise and who knows just where to source the best wines to blend to my style. Fruit, freshness and finesse are the pre-requisites; I look for the opposite of people's image of heavy, dense, sweet wines from the Rhône. The white is always light but aromatic with stone and citrus fruits and herbs. It comes from old vines in the Ventoux, farmed basically organically and made and aged traditionally in concrete tank.
