Abreuver is always made with Gamay from Daniel's own vines in Bogy. A very hot vintage there has produced a wine with some real fire in its belly, but with the gentle touch a la Sage, balance is still present. The grapes macerate over three weeks in whole bunches, without being stirred or punched down, resulting in a soft extraction and a transluscent ruby wine. Pure, peppery, granitic Gamay and an excellent expression of fruit.

Sage has now officially partnered up with Jordi Torgue to make wine as 'Force Boisson'. The wines are some of the most sought-after and for good reason. Daniel has small amounts of Gamay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Chardonnay and Viognier. Most come from his vineyards in the hills of the northern Rhône and he buys some grapes from his friend Jean Delobre and from other growers further south. Their takes on these well-known varietals from a seemingly well-known area are extremely expressive.
