Sous le Végétal (Jason Ligas & Patrick Bouju)

Sous le Végétal is an exciting new project from young Greek winemaker Jason Ligas, in partnership with the Auvergne epicurean Patrick Bouju, based on the island of Samos. The project very much focusses on a return to traditional methods to express an indigenous grape varietal, Muscat de Samos, over the varied and unique micro-terroirs of this volcanic island. It is certain that Bouju's involvement in the project (as well as Clovis Ochin of Yard, Paris notoriety) will provide the seal of approval necessary to lead a new set of open-minded drinkers to discover and enjoy the wines of this ancient and often underrated winemaking nation.
