I met Daniel about 6 years ago at a wine fair in London and have had his wine at the back of my mind even since: that is right until I went to visit him in 2020 and consequently shipped a small parcel them. His story is a fascinating one: in 2001, after having worked in industry, he took the odd decision to start rearing organic cattle. He acquired a heard of 40 or so Bazadaise cows - the Kobe beef of France - that he began to rear Biodynamically and just outside the small town of Bazas to the South East of Bordeaux. In 2010 he took over the only 2 ha of vines in the commune made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. He immediately began to work the vines Biodynamically and organically, making preparations and using the manure of his prized cows to fertilize the soil. The vines are covered with clover and wild flowers all year round. In 2011 he gained the status of Bordeaux Supérieur and 2012 he made his first harvest. His wines are certified organic and are soon to achieve Biodynamic certification.

Tasting note: Damson; sweet red cherry; strawberry and an underlying forest floor; soft earthiness. Raspberries lurk in the background. Silky and soft; but with very dry and quite animated acidity. The fruit turns darker in the mouth; to cranberries; black cherries and blackcurrant. A wash of eucalyptus emerges; followed by aromatic spice; liquorice and cardoman. Exotic.
Winemaking Detail: Certified Organic viticulture and soon to be certified Biodynamic. Fermentation on wild yeasts at controlled temperature in Stainless steel. Long maceration on the skins to extract colour and texture. Minimal sulphur added at bottling.
