Another négociant wine, this time using Bergeron, a highly obsure strain of Roussanne that is found in the alpine region of Savoie. Macerated on the skins and aged in barrel, it is is ripe and exotic on the nose. Dry and structured on the palate. A rare and intriguing wine. Plus a little bit of trivia: the label was designed by non other than elusive winemaker Aurélien Lefort.

Patrick started making wine in 2004 with 1.5 hectares of vines which has now increased to around 5 hectares. The soil in Patrick’s vineyards is heavily basaltic thanks to the chain of extinct volcanoes, the Puy de Dôme at its heart, which form the backbone of the region. Patrick’s vineyards are mainly planted with old Gamay d’Auvergne (a smaller berried, thicker skinned variety than its Beaujolais cousin), a little Chardonnay and some Pinot Noir. We also recommend taking a look at his Sous le Végétal wines, an altogether more Greek collaboration with Jason Ligas.
