no added sulfur

Country: France

In 2008, Paul-Henri Thillardon began making wine from 3 hectares of vineyards, with the conviction that Chénas has always been unjustifiably overshadowed by Moulin-à-Vent. He has slowly added new parcels to form the 12 hectares he works today. From the start, he has farmed organically, working some of the vineyards with a horse and using biodynamic treatments. In 2009, he met Fleurie winemakers and lynchpins of the Fleurie natural winemaking scene, Jean-Louis Dutraive and Yvon Métras, who took the young Paul-Henri under their wing. Until 2015, Paul-Henri partially de-stemmed most cuvées and practiced a more Burgundian vinification. Starting in 2014, he decided to switch to semi-carbonic.

This pet-nat made from Gamay is the palest pink color in the glass. Full of fresh, lush fruit flavors and just the slightest bit off-dry. Easy drinking and delicious!
