JF Coutelou Grenache Printemps 2018
Style – Dry, Red Wine, Full Bodied
Grapes – Grenache
Region – Languedoc, France
Winemaking - Jean François Coutelou (Jeff for short) runs his family’s domaine in Puimoisson a few kilometres from Beziers on France’s mediterranean coast.
The farm has been certified organic since 1987 and disturbed by the monoculture of modern farming Jeff has planted thousands of trees amongst his vineyards transforming the 20 hectares of the farm to 13 planted with vines and the rest with olives, figs, almonds…
What it tastes like - At the other end of the spectrum from the heavy-booted, dense dark Grenache this bright and crunchy, raspberry-hued example is all about freshness and fun. A blend of Grenache and "No one really knows what else", this racy little number bucks the trends that wines from the Languedoc lack spark.
Dietary – Natural, Low Intervention
ABV – 13%
