One of Patrick & Justine's collabrative négociant cuvées, made using grapes bought in from outside of their own Domaine La Bohème. This orange wine sees whole bunches (skins, stems and all) of Muscat, Grenache Gris, Riesling, & Auxerrois ferment in clay amphora - the method giving the wine profound texture and the combination of grapes providing swoon-inducing aromatics.
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.
