Keep it natural, baby.
After years of yearning for a Muscadet that met the standards of natural winemaking and coming up empty handed, Bobo Selections took it upon themselves to create Pulpe Fiction. They partnered with their friends Nicolas Reau and Lise & Bertrand Jousset. They are winegrowers and vignerons of impeccable integrity, so they knew that they had the resources, connections, and know-how to make this fictional Muscadet a reality.
Lise, Bertrand, and Nicolas searched for organic farmers to pursue the project, and they found Antoine and Philippe Delaunay. Expert farmers who have been growing organically since 2011, Antoine and Philippe are real “paysans” with a focus on biodiversity in the vineyards. They have 25 hectares of Melon de Bourgogne near Nantes, in the small village of Vertou. After exploring the vineyards and identifying the varied terroirs of the holdings, they selected the parcels located on decomposed granite soils in order to produce a Muscadet with notable finesse.
A Bobo wine is a natural wine. Their wines are organically or biodynamically farmed, harvested by hand, fermented with only indigenous yeasts, made with nothing added or taken away in the cellar, and with only the smallest amount (from zero to 40 ppm) of additional sulfites before bottling to ensure a clean, precise taste.
Launched in 2017 as a distinct branch of the larger T. Edward portfolio, Bobo Selections was born out of their desire to embrace a larger cause. Beyond the palate, their wines speak to a sustainable worldview. They fit into a life of transparent, intentional, soulful practices and consumption that their farmers embody and that complements their own identity.
