Keep it natural, baby.
This wine is an ideal expression of what Calce can offer to the world of white wine. It is slightly floral on the nose with intriguing spice, but has a mineral tensity that holds all the sunshine and drama of the Roussillon in an intricately wound coil, ready to refresh you now or unwind over the next few years in the cellar. Fans of fine white Burgundy, ouillé Jura Chardonnay and great dry Chenin take note, this is a real head turner.
Jean-Philippe Padié was born and raised in Burgundy, but always dreamed of returning to his grandparent's home in the Southwest. In 2001, after his studies, he moved to the famous village of Calce to make natural wine with alongside the domaine's of Gauby, Matassa, Horizon, and Pithon. He works with no additives or sulphites. His wines are distinctly crafted, with a lifted quality rare in the Roussillon.
