Yes, it's that kind of Beaujolais. The one that first made you fall in love with natural wine, brought you in from the conventional wine cold. Dutch expats Sylvie and Thierry bought a farm in Lantignié, where they're farming organically and planting trees to make their vineyards healthier. This wine comes from old-vine Gamay that grows in pink granite soils over quartz and clay. It's incredibly pure and full of life and is everything you want Beaujolais to be: ethereal, zippy, charming, a little smoldering, and really delicious.
"Our -Sylvie & Thierry- adventure started in 2019 when we moved to our domaine in Lantignié, Beaujolais after working in restaurants in Amsterdam. It's a small, 5,5Ha, nature-friendly domaine. With almost all the vineyards and land (total 8ha) around our domain we are creating a great ecosystem here. To increase biodiversity in our vineyards we planted over 100 fruit & nut trees in 2019. We want to work with nature, not against. To stay in this mindset, in the vineyard we work with a homeopathic touch, where we collect plants and herbs around the estate to make plant based tea infusions that will help the vines to become stronger and healthier. We also work by the moon, this results in our choices; when to bottle/press how long we will do the maceration and so on. On a meadow at the end of our vineyards we have our sheep (who are a part of our team and going to help us eat the herbs in the vineyard during wintertime and give the soil food in return).
Since the start of our adventure, we are in organic conversion (ECOcert)."
